HP PRINTER IS RECOGNIZED AS "OTHER DEVICE" NOT PRINTER

HP Recommended
Laserjet M1217 nfw MFP
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to connect this old printer to my elderly Mom's Lenovo laptop. The driver's seem to download, there's a notification sound on the laptop when I turn the printer on however it only shows as an "other device" and not as a "printer." I'm a novice so please breakdown the resolution to a very basic level. Thanks!
