You can always experiment by selecting other model printers from the HP list in the printer wizard that are closest to yours such as a LJ 6 or any LJ 5's that may be listed.
I did that once with an HP Photosmart 1115. I called it a Photosmart 8200, and it worked fine with W7 32 bit.
It would not work with W7 x64, however.

That is why I throw that suggestion out to you. Nothing pleases me more than to keep my old trusted equipment working.
You can also google the issue. I just found this, which may be of help.

This forum was a life saver for my HP laserjet 5P it now lives on. I went to the HP diver down loads and used a previosly suggested universal diver down load and it opperates properly.
