Allow me to do so, you're responding to a very ignorant and
obnoxious troll, please don't do that, OK?
With the exception of the two people who gave good answers the
rest of you are typical MS users-ignorant.

I found some drivers for Panasonic dot matrix printers,
including KX-P2123, and which I can only offer for you to
try. They are packed in a RAR file and I have stored them at
Mediafire. You can get them at

Good luck
Yeah that's one of the many spyware program traps, they are
trying to get u to load spyware or proprietary programs by
falsely claiming they are printer drivers.

Just in case anyone doesn't believe what XS11E posted, let me point
out that someone like you who continually changes the address he posts
with is *clearly* a troll. You change the address so it isn't easy to
killfile you.

Just was given a Win7 box with Enterprize on it.

When I try to add my old panasonic dot matrix printer for which I do not
have any setup disk but which works perfectly under XP and is listed in
the XP printer list, I find that this 7 OS (for which I do not have the
install disk) does not list Panasonic.

When I click on update printer files, I get a message saying wait till
Windows updates the files, should take a few minutes. But I do not yet
have a net connection so if this is an online update I cannot do it.

Is there anyway to get a more complete driver list for printers for
Win7. The Mfg is not releasing updates for this dinasour but very good
printer (yeah panasonic!). I have searched and searched for a driver for
this Kx-p2123 printer but all I find is spyware sites pretending to have
the driver while trying to get u to download their malware.

HELP!
I feel your pain. I have a Fujitsu 5800 dot-matrrix that worked OK
on WindowsXP but no effort or emulation made it work with Windows 7.

Now it sits in a corner gathering dust even though it worked for many
years processing two-part stationary.

How many non-Fujitsu drivers did you try? It's hard to believe none
worked, especially the nearly universal Epson drivers or Microsoft's
Generic driver.

I tried all the Epson drivers, especially the FX100. No luck.

Where is this Microsoft "Generic Driver"?

The "manufacturer" is Generic, so look in the G's when you have the
list of available printer manufacturers displayed.

And he's not even clever enough to be worth reading :-(

Don't lie. OP said he did not have access to internet on that
machine. Why give MS a chance to put spyware on your computer
in order to get the drivers they SHOULD have provided with
their latest incomplete (and most likely insecure) OS?
Thank you for confirming my theory.

You might try the "Oki" "Oki Generic dot-matrix 24 pin printer"

Did you try the driver for the Fujitsu DL1150 or DL1250? From a quick look at the specs for them and your DL5800, they
all use pretty much the same emulation. Guess it's a matter of trying them all, along with the Generics mentioned in
other replies.

Slightly OT: I have an old HP LJ6 (I couldn't belie the blokes in this
thread who still have dot matrixes (dotmatrices?)).

I used a parallel to USB adaptor and plugged it into an XP laptop. Worked
fine, possibly after driver downloaded (can't remember).
