Just bought a new computer with windows 7 but unable to set up printer, it gets as far as printer icon in bottom page but does not print.Download a drive no difference, contacted HP said I had download driver - they responded by saying download the driver!
any ideas please?

Taking a look at the drivers listed here

click here

I would guess you would need to download and install the Vista drivers and utility software

Then download and install what looks like an update to the Vista drives for Windows 7 compatibility

Oddly it seems there are different versions for the many flavours of Vista and Win7 so it could be important to get the versions which match the Windows 7 version you have installed

Just in case the long link above does not work use this one
