Currently there are no Win 8 drivers for that printer.  Maybe it will be available in the future.

@abhipalani, you can go into the windows and fax folder and add a printer. You will want to add the printer "desk jet 990c". This will give you the printing functionality. 

 

Once you get to pick the printer you will need to select "HP" as the manufacture and "desk jet 990c" as the driver. 

 

Let me know the outcome.

Re: where can i find the proper windows 8 driver for Hp deskjet 3325 printer

First of all I must said I have a archive with "Windows 7 updates for HP Printers" stollen from the same PC but with Windows 7 (from printer updates).

 

1. Connect the printer and "Power on"
2. Go to "Device manager"
3. Expand "Other devices"
4. Right click mouse on "hpdeskjet 3320" --> select "Update Driver Software"
5. Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
6. Select "Let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer"
7. Select "Printers"  (NOT Print queues) and press "NEXT"
8. Select "Have Disk" --> Browse to folder where "HP Drivers Windows Update files" are and select "prnhp001.inf" --> press "OK" button
9. Search for "hp deskjet 3600 series (LIDIL)" in the list, select it and press "NEXT" button
10. It appears a windows message "Installing this device driver is not recommended because Windows cannot verify.....bla,bla,bla" --> PRESS "YES" button
11. "Windows has finished installing the driver software for this device" --> Press "CLOSE" button.
12. Go to "Control Panel\Devices and Printers" --> right mose click on "hp deskjet 3600 series (LIDIL)" --> select "Printing preferences" and here you can set defaults for this printer: Paper option/Print Quality/etc.... and most important you can CALIBRATE the printer from "Services" menu 
13. That's all...Hope that will help you! Working 100% for me for a HP 3325 Printer

Re: where can i find the proper windows 8 driver for Hp deskjet 3325 printer

Hi,  I try your suggested methods but doesn't work.   HELP~~~

Mine is Dell Windows 8 PC + Deskjet3325.

 

1. first I don't have 'Windows 7 updates for HP Printers'

2. Then don't have 'hpdeskjet 3320' on the list to choose from.

3. But I continue on , then don't know where to find '"HP Drivers Windows Update files" are and select "prnhp001.inf"

4. Anyway I tried to download the following Deskjet models :  990C, 450(Microsoft), 3510, 3520, 1000, PCL3. They all don't work, all show ERROR on status. Of course no test page is being printed. 

 

What should I do??

Thanks a lot for your help.

Re: where can i find the proper windows 8 driver for Hp deskjet 3325 printer

Ok!

Take it easy..

There is not a dedicate Windows 7/8 driver for your HP 3325 Printer but as you could see in my post is a compatible one "hp deskjet 3600 series (LIDIL)" --> this printer driver you have to install. Follow my steps that I post there. Here are Drivers colection from Windows 7 AutoUpdate:

http://www.share-byte.net/7BkeNh

http://www.4shared.com/rar/8iwDLAyW/ALL_Printers_Drivers_Windows_7.html

 

So....download "ALL Printers Drivers Windows 7 Update.rar", put it in a new folder and extract it there....you will see the file "prnhp001.inf" that I mention in my post.

Follow my steps:

1. Connect the printer and "Power on"
2. Go to "Device manager"
3. Expand "Other devices"
4. Right click mouse on "hpdeskjet 3320" --> select "Update Driver Software"
5. Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
6. Select "Let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer"
7. Select "Printers"  (NOT Print queues) and press "NEXT"
8. Select "Have Disk" --> Browse to folder where you extract the archive"ALL Printers Drivers Windows 7 Update.rar" are and select "prnhp001.inf" --> press "OK" button
9. Search for "hp deskjet 3600 series (LIDIL)" in the list, select it and press "NEXT" button
10. It appears a windows message "Installing this device driver is not recommended because Windows cannot verify.....bla,bla,bla" --> PRESS "YES" button
11. "Windows has finished installing the driver software for this device" --> Press "CLOSE" button.
12. Go to "Control Panel\Devices and Printers" --> right mose click on "hp deskjet 3600 series (LIDIL)" --> select "Printing preferences" and here you can set defaults for this printer: Paper option/Print Quality/etc.... and most important you can CALIBRATE the printer from "Services" menu
