    When I try to print anything, my laptop says that the printer is offline when it isn't. When I try to "find printers" I get the error message: "The Active Directory Domain Services is currently unavailable." This is a new Windows 7 Dell Inspiron. The CD that came with the HP Officejet J6450 did not have the drivers for Windows 7, so I've tried downloading them from a couple different sites. I can see my print jobs in the queue, but the only way they'll print is if I connect to the printer manually. All of the fixes I've read for this situation for people who have Vista do not work. Thanks for any assistance.
