HP Drivers

Go to the HP Website to see if they offer a driver for this particular model printer for Win2000.
If you don't find one there, you can try some other sites, like DriverGuide.com.

Jeff, Are You Using Windows 2000?

If that's the case, then the Apollo P-2200 is an older printer and I can't find any Windows 2000 drivers for it on the HP site. It was originally designed with Windows 9.X/ME in mind and the drivers I found supported those systems only. I suspect that it's no longer supported.

I did find the link below from a two year old discussion describing an option to install the HP Deskjet 600 driver as a substitute but do so at your own risk.

My recomendation would be to purchase a new computer which is compatible for your current operating system.

Hope this helps.

Printer Driver

jeffg1962, As Grif indicated, many older printers may no longer be supported in the newer operating systems. The company may not offer a driver for your printer. The only solution may be to purchase a new printer, (rather than a new computer), that is compatible with WinXP. I believe thats what Grif meant to say.
Best of Luck
