I do not have an HP printer running at the moment but I have succesfully managed to get a couple of oldies going. This is what I did.
Download the latest driver package you can find and expand it into a folder. In your case, browsing, it looks like it would have to be an XP driver package.
Select Devices and printers from the controll panel and "Add" a printer.
Add a LOcal printer and ceate a new port.
Select Local port. Give it a distinctive name.
You will find that you now have the Windows 7 option to install its own drivers. This is what HP reccomend. If, however, you have done this already, then select "have disk".
Go to the folder where you have expanded the drivers and see if it will accept them.
Second choice (This is what worked for me)
Run the Install, or setup .exe from your created folder, in compatibility mode for XP and you may get lucky.
Well I'll be darned ... I was checking into the Printer properties as reghakr suggested, just checking each tab ... didn't change a thing and in one of the tabs there was a Print Test Page button. I click that and the darn thing printed. I changed nothing from yesterday to today except shut down the computer for the night. Go figger.
Actually before I posted about the problem, I did try a Print Test page and got no response from the printer. I don't like when things happen like that - not knowing what happened to correct the problem. Well, it's still working today.
