LasetJet P1005 stuck in print queue

LaserJet P1005
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have this printer LaserJet P1005, when I had Windows 7 Ultimate x64 I could print with no problems, everything was doing it's job, now when I have Windows 10 Pro x64 every time I try to print documents they are stuck in print queue. I downloaded original drivers from hp website, does anyone know what's the problem?
