4550 Color LaserJet won't install on WIN 8 system

My new WIN 8 HP laptop cannot see and install my Primary Networked Printer, an older HP Color LaserJet 4550 that is hardlined (by parallel port) into my desktop which is then hardlined into my wireless router. I have not had any issues with WIN 7, WIN Millenium, WIN 2000, WIN XP or WIN 95 in connecting to this printer.


I have installed both the HP Universal PCL Print Driver and the HP Universal PostScript Print Driver that are listed on the Drivers page. Neither one works with this printer.
