I am trying to figure out where to get this driver for my HP LaserJet 4 printer. Worked fine in windows 7 but for some reason now it created an error #123. Through troubleshooting it said spooler had previous print job pending. Killed that restarted the spooler, then restarted the computer. After trying to print again same error #123. Uninstall printer re-install same error. Does anyone have a HP Driver for this.
Went to HP and it lists for windows 10 Update. Though nothing shows up when I search windows update for the HP LaserJet 4. Lots for windows 7 & 8.
LaserJet > HP LASERJET 4 PLUS ON WINDOWS 10. Windows 7 was the last version that had access to an HP printer driver. My old HP Laserjet 4 printer with postscript, worked perfectly well in Windows 7. I have just upgraded the OS to Windows 10 and although it appears - 5173736. Or Win 7 to Microsoft Windows 8) you will HP LaserJet 4 Plus.

I have a weird issue too with both 10240 and 10586.
I have a HP OfficeJet Pro 586dw. The thing is Device Manager shows the printer and fax in both printers and printer queues which shows as working properly but it also shows the printer in Multi-Function Adapters as disabled. I run the setup.exe program after deleting the printer and fax under Printers which made the one in printer queues disappear which installs the printer again but the Multi-Function Adapters still shows the printer with a arrow except no drivers can be found yet the printer works fine.
You are trying to use a printer from old dos days with the lastest windows operating system so you may be out of luck. Odds are your system does not have a parallel port and you are using a parallel to usb converter. That is where the problem probably exists. You will probably have to find a usb to parallel adapter that is certified for windows 10. Another option if the computer is a desktop and has expansion slots would be to get a parallel card that will fit in one of the slots and add it to the printer and then connect the printer using the parallel port which should work. I have just converted from Win 7 to Win 10. I have a Laser Jet 4 and used a USB/Parallel adapter cable.
Have printer on, and hooked upto the USB port on your computer. Goto Printers & Devices, and select install printer. The computer, in my case, did not detect the printer.
I selected, my device is not listed. I then selected manually install printer. When you do this it will give you several options.
Use, virtual usb port. Click next, and the computer will install the printer using the resident drivers left over from your previous windows iteration, mine was windows 7. Click finish and print a test page.
You should be good to go. Rfk15n is brilliant!!!!! Like rfk15n, I moved from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and have a LaserJet 4. I just didn't understand the part of his/her instruction about the 'virtual usb port.'
Eventually, the Microsoft people helped me. What rfk15n was saying was that, when you are manually installing the printer (LaserJet 4 or 4 Plus), you will have a choice to make about ports. I kept blowing past that. Don't blow past it, but click on the choices in the port area. That's where you will find the 'virtual usb.' Click on that.
Then click on the LaserJet 4 or 4 Plus in the list that Windows 10 provides, as appropriate for your printer. When you click to print the test page, it should work like a charm. (I kept getting error messages and couldn't get my printer to work before I got the port problem fixed.) You do NOT need to get any kind of special parallel USB converter that is 'windows 10 certified.' It is all in the port you click.
This worked for me. Thanks to whomever posted about using the virtual port. I moved from Windows XP to Windows 8 and now to Windows 10.
My HP Laserjet 4 plus could not work with Windows 8 until I realized I needed a parallel port which I got from the big box eletronic store. I think it installed some new drivers but eventually it worked. Thankfully I didn't have to wait to update this just now. A quick google search brought me to this thread and just like that the problem is fixed. Thanks again. I created an account to say this.
