HP Deskjet 9800 wont install following a new hard-drive install

HP Deskjet 9800
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Has anyone found a way to use their HP Deskjet 9800 with Windows 10 64 bit?  Was working following an upgrade to 10 but stopped when I had to have new hard-drive and fresh install.  I cannot download a driver.  It has been suggested that i use Deskjet 990 but I cannot download this either.

I resolved this issue by copying the drivers over from another Laptop that had Windows 7 installed.

What were the names of the printer files you found, they were probably .inf files? HP seems to be useless as far as help on this, many of the solutions they suggest just don't work. I would probably take one of their techs about 15 minutes to create a W10 driver but there are tons of people who spent big bucks on these priinters who can't use them.
