Hello, I have exactly the same problem. I followed the advice above to the letter, but Laserjet 4l doesn't appear on the list on the right hand side. I have seen mention on some forums (and on the HP drivers site) that I need to click "Windows Update" on the "Install the print driver" screen to update the list of printers. But when I do that I simply get a message saying "Windows was unable to get a list of devices from Windows Update. Please try again later." No matter when I try, I always get this message. On some forums there is the suggestion that having Automatic Updates switched off might be the cause of this message. But I have automatic updates switched on! So I am stuck. Can anyone please help?

I purchased a Parallel to USB and switched it with the lovely gray cable that came with the printer, and my computer installed the driver all by itself! Worked like a charm! The first 64 bit computer I had took me hours to find the driver, so this was a welcome change! I highly recommend just replacing the cord with a Parallel to USB!

if you want to connect to an existing networked Laserjet 4L you will need to install the driver as a local printer first (the update Windows button does not come up in the add networked printer procedure);
also ... the 4L driver does not seem to appear in its expected order (before 4M, say) , but it is definitely there, as noted above.
