I need a printer that I can hook up to my old Compaq 1570 '98' computer.
Are there any available?

Except maybe commercial printers but for home use most likely not. Maybe a thrift/used store might have one but you might have a problem finding toner/ink/printer ribbon for one. You have to find a printer that works with windows 98.

Or maybe copy the info off the old computer to a new one and then print. It probably doesn't have a CRD( cd write drive). Does it have an USB port? Given the year it came out, it might have one. If it does you might be able to transfer the files to a newer computer. What type of files are you trying to print(.txt files)?
