Yes. I'm assuming your printer has the old style Winchester plug instead of a USB jack. It's called a USB to parallel adapter or a USB to printer adapter.

no pc stated, hp what? guessing laptop.
windows 10

tell what the PC does good and bad both.
boots ok.
logs in ok
desktop works OK?
my guess is you meant Accelerometer dead, or the thing called
drive Guard,

most HP pCs 10 year old fails this if you upgrade it to w10
this is the HP only software that protects the HDD if Laptop is dropped.
if the PC has SSD upgrade this software is useless.
if is real HDD, the w7 version has 50/50 chance of working.
so tell more ,get more.

some of these PCs have 2 battery options.

and that error only means 2nd battery not present .

some new batteries are bad.
does the PC run on AC pack alone , no big batteries attached,
if not the PACK is no good and charging becomes impossible.

a new battery can be overly , discharged sitting in some warehouse for 1+ years.
so the manual on your PC tells you to charge it for 24 hours first. (or while sleeping)
or reseat the battery even brush of the connectors to it. clean them.

either the cooling fan on the mother board, the case or the power supply is not functioning the system will not power on properly or will shut down quickly if the fans are not running. I would guess one of the system board fans are not working and if not replaced the system will not power on or let you into windows

to restart your HP Assistant you must first sure that you have install it in your system then go to control panel then open HP Wireless Assistant then check the properties then modify it. Then press the button with an antenna with a wave at the top to enable your wireless connection. Make sure that you enable your wireless connection for you to have HP Wireless Assistant.

BUT is 2007 or never with w10, is it 32bit or 64bit PC and OS?
type winver in the run box to learn what you run.
or is windows dead, (unstated also)
my guess wild , is you forgot to type this.
Error Code 0xc0000001 in Windows
we first run HDD tests, after all if the OS is corrupted (per above)
then repair or fresh installs will fail on all bad or weak HDD.
so if that passes read this

I am assuming you are wanting install this on a HP machine, so all you should need to do, is go to the HP website if you use the machine you want to install it on, the web site should be able to detect, your make and model, and if any software is missing it will direct you to the page where you can download the software, and install it in the same way you install any other application in windows.

The HP support assistant is a bit of software that is pre installed on all HP computers, it helps you keep the drivers and other software up to date, it will also help you trouble shoot issues with the device ect, if you have lost the software due to a re-install ect you can download it from the HP web site

Can you give us more information, is the USB not working at all, and if so when did it stop working, if you go to device manager, are the drivers for your USB ports showing any issues.

this is ProBook know them and elitebooks well, they are my favorite, as for 2 things, last for ever, and rugged.
and HP documents on this are FABULOUS GRADE and DEEP
202 page service manual at hp.com for your PC.
a 2009 PC.
is the FAN DEAD inside>? I BET yES. (This is first thing to know)

that charger is really just a raw DC power pack
120vac (usa) to 19vdc raw DC power.
the charging magic (a chip) is inside the PC. a key fact to know.
forget silly/ lame LED lights. they get confused at drop of hat. ok?

1`: remove the big battery off bottom of PC, (easy no?)
2: run on the 19v battery pack alone, even forever is allowed. hint.
3: does PC run ok now? yes/no......
4: yes, then the RTC coin cell battery is dead, non go 10 years sorry, not going to happen ever, if marginal it FAILS NEXT., ok.
5: new RTC battery, AC only we next go in to bios. page 96 in the manual covers this.
6: does bios work now? power on and hit esc , over and over
page 116 in the service manual covers how to reach BIOS.
ESC then F10 (hammered at power on act)

if the fan is dead BIOS will be too most times.
if he fan is packed in lint as all are this old then the PC overheats.
all do that, this old. everyone not parked for 10 years as a hanger queen.
that is just 1/2 the story fixing ANY laptop really.
we can go to phase II , next , testing the HDD,
or cleaning out the junk here. LINT
see that radiator, oops. big trouble that.

Probably too late for anyone to benefit from, but use the jumpers on the motherboard to reset CMOS. That's what worked for me.
