Have you tried connecting the printer to the PC yet? If you have and Windows recognised it then you should have selected the option to search Windows Update online for a driver.

If you did all that and it still couldn't locate a driver, then as mentioned earlier, post back the model number of the printer and also let us know whether you're running the 32bit or 64bit version of Windows 7. If you're not sure then you'll find that info in Control Panel -> System -> "System Type" section.
