HP Deskjet 460 Mobile Printer compatible with New Windows 8 Laptop???

Have this great little printer for work when traveling, but suddenly, can not use.

 

Old laptop crashed, so just bought this new big-screen laptop at Costco, runs basic Windows 8:

HP Pavilion g7z Laptop, AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M 2.6 GHz

 

Have spent many hours trying to find a driver to be able to use the printer with this laptop.  Do not have the printer CD with me on this work trip.  

 

Urgent - please advise.

 

thanks

I too am experiencing this problem. I tried using Windows update for my windows 8 laptop with the device connected, but windows claims there are no updates availble. Device manager does not list the device, neither as a printer nor as an unkown entity.

Hello, 

 

If you're trying to connect the printer with a USB cord, go into the windows printer and faxes folder and add a printer. You will need to add the printer "Deskjet 990c."

 

Here's what it should look like:

This will give you the printing function. 

 

If you have any more questions let me know.
