Hello,

I have an old FAX-120 IBM compatible dot matrix printer for which I need a driver. Any ideas please?

You should be able to use the generic text-only printer driver included with XP.

Dang! That thing's almost as old as I am! :lol: 

As was said above, the generic text only driver is all you got.

Careful with the age jokes. . . ;) 

The first PC I used in high school was from a kit: 6502 CPU system with built-in keyboard, and the optional 32K of memory! $3500 for the kit, then the school still had to add a B&W TV as a monitor and a cassette tape recorder to load BASIC and user programs.

Did you use punch cards? I have a friend a year older than I who used some sort of mini-computer at the County offices that required punch cards.

Punch cards and mylar (paper) tape. I even worked with some of the earliest hard disks (5MB, the size of a refrigerator).
