Hi,
WELCOME TO JUST ANSWER!! My name isXXXXX will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

Too much difficult but I have found out a HP Laserjet printer which you can use with Windows 98 but it is a refurbished printer that you can buy from the link below and download the driver from the second link otherwise if you want to use new printer then you have to upgrade your operating system to Windows Xp.

Does HP still make the Deskjet 540 and/or is there any place I can purchase one?
No HP does not make this printer any more if you want to buy the same model then you have to go for Old ones I have found one you can buy it from the link below..

Hello

Is the HP Deskjet 540 still available thru HP? Or is there any place that still sells them that are compatible with Windows 98?

The answer to both your questions is No, I am sorry. HP does not sell this printer any more and nor does anyone else.

Your only option is to buy a used printer on ebay or some other online / local store.

Feel free to ask any question or concern you may have. I will be glad to help you.
