Hp driver problem

  2neat 19:40 27 Mar 2010

new win 7 64 bit lappy. USB printer plugged into desktop called atlas. HP 940c installed no probs when plugged straight into lappy usb port, however I cant connect across the network because it cant find the driver. Can see the printer on the network. How do I resolve this?

Not sure I can answer this but it might help to know what OS is on the other computer(s) on the network.

sorry, xp on other pc which printer is plugged into. Just got new Viao with 7 64 bit.
Missed vista so this is very new to me.
I am trying to connect to printer from lappy.
If I knew where the driver was I could probably get this working....doh

You'll need to install the drivers for your printer on your laptop. If you get an option for advanced install for the HP printer on your laptop, using the disc supplied with the printer, then use that and install the basic driver and forget the 'bells and whistles' that come with it.
