Drivers for LaserJet 5P in Win7

I know that Win7 does not supply drivers for the HP LaserJet 5P, but is there anywhere else I can get them from?

 

Thanks for any info.

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, the LaserJet 5p is not supported in Windows 7.

 

Please see the link below...

HP LaserJet 5, 5M, 5MP, 5Si Printer series
 NOTE: The 5L, 5N, and 5P models in the LaserJet 5 series are NOT supported in Windows 7.

Thanks Paul.

 

I was just hoping the someone out there had independently modified the LaserJet 5P drivers so that they would run in 64bit Win7

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.

Thanks Paul,

I'll have a tinker.   I am of the old school, and it seems a great pity to throw out something that has been working perfectly well.

Me too.

 

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.
