HP 2100 USB Win7 64 bit help install ?

Its been a few years since I've needed any help. My HP 2200d just died and I found an HP 2100 to replace it till I try to fix the 2200d. The 2100 will print test and config pages and Win7 pings when I plug USB in. I won't print with the 2200d driver. I downloaded HP's PCL5 2100 driver but it won't self install and I'm at a loss on what Virtural USB ports are. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Still trying without success but when I opened it I found that it has a CablesToGo Parallel to USB converter cable an d it's not USB as I thought. But I Kind of recall using a similar USB converter from WalMart on an earlier HP printer but with Win XP.

Finally go it to print a Test Page but can't print ordinary stuff.
What's the difference between PCL5 & PCL6, is one better?
