Would an old (2001) but very functional HP Laserjet 1200 series printer be compatible with a Compaq Presario cQ57 Notebook (2012), please! Thank you.

if you google searched for HP Laserjet 1200 drivers you would have found the hp website with the right drivers and the answer would be yes, but insaying that I've had problems getting old printers to blend with w7 32/64 & w8 32/64bit, good luck, if it doesn't work buy a new printer. here the link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp!prodNameId=29790&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=29789

I have a Laserjet 1100 running on Windows 8 64-bit - but it is using a jetdirect box.

Your computer make and model is irrelevant.What is important is your OS which you don't mention.

Thank you everyone, and sorry sms, we are mid 60s and not computer savvy, the OS is Windows 7.

All sorted, thanks to a friend we call "the pc whisperer!" Brilliant! And what bunkum you have to buy new hardware every time you need a new PC!
