Product Name: HP Deskjet 1220C
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)


I need some help!

I was working, for several years with my HP Deskjet 1220C and it was perfect. Very good printer!

Some days ago, I formatted my “C” disk and I installed the same Windows operating system that I had before. I am surprised that now I can’ not install my printer back… Windows said that does not have the DRIVERS.

I try to get them from HP WEB SITE, but I could not find them.   

I try to get them from WINDOWS  SITE, but I could not find them either.

Can someone help me to install again my HP Deskjet 1220C? I will appreciate a lot.
