  • A parallel cable on Windows 95/98/ME.

Uninstall the current printer driver before installing this new version of the printer driver. To remove the printer driver, click "Start", "Programs", "hp deskjet 640c series", "hp deskjet 640c series Uninstall" and then follow the on-screen prompts.

Caution: The printer's cable (USB or Parallel) must be unplugged before proceeding!
