    There seems to be no way to make my Sony Vaio with Vista print to my HP
    LaserJet 1300 - any suggestions on how to make this work?

    Nothing happened when I plugged in the USB-cable - as opposed to when I
    plugged in the USB-cable to my DeskJet F380, where the Vaio simply informed
    me that it installed the printer.

    No - I did not - I was not aware of this. My previous private pc and the Dell
    from work both picked up the printer without any interference from my side -
    and the Vaio picked up my Deskjet F380 also without any preparations or
    assistance from my side. But I'm willing to try your suggestion - I'll let
    you know if it works.

    No luck - same reaction from the pc, i.e. nothing.

    When selecting add a printer I get a choice between "only use this if you do
    not have have a usb-printer - windows installs usb-printers automatically
    when connected" and "add a network printer, a wireless printer or a bluetooth
    printer...."

    Are you sure that the LJ1300's USB port is working?

    Vista does have a built-in driver for the LJ1300. The problem is getting
    the special HP DOT4 port.

    Just ignore the warning in the Add A Printer Wizard to "only use this if
    you do not have have a usb-printer."

    I'm not sure what besides HP's printer status monitor will *not* work
    without the DOT4 port, but it's worth a try.

    Alternatively, you could try HP's "Universal Print Driver" for Vista
    (although it looks like a big mess to me):
    http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...Id=238320&submit.y=9&submit.x=4&lang=en&cc=us

    Be sure choose the correct one (Vista or Vista 64-bit) and read the
    install instructions.

    There is no DeskJet 1300 on the HP support site, but there is support for
    their D1300 series.

    If it actually says "1300" on the front of the printer, find the data plate
    (near the power line or perhaps on the bottom) and get the exact model
    number. HP does had support for these:

    DeskJet D1311
    DeskJet D1320
    DeskJet D1330
    DeskJet D1341
    DeskJet D1360

    See
    http://search.hp.com/query.html?lang=en&search=++&qt=D1300&la=en&cc=us&charset=utf-8

    They all appear to have drivers for Vista 64 bit.
