Driver for hp psc 1210xi all-in-one printer using Windows XP

Hello,

I lost the CD that came with my old hp psc 1210xi all-in-one printer.

HP Support says my printer is discontinued and driver no longer available. 

Where can I find the driver for this printer? Printer model #: Q1660A, dated Nov 25, 2003. Serial #: CN3BPF507Z

I'm using Windows XP on an HP Compaq nc6230 laptop.

Thanks David. Yes, I had already tried to download the driver at the location you indicated but somehow it didn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled it twice before it began to work; I probably did something wrong the previous times. And then also installed several of the 7 updates listed in the same location, which helped cure several glitches. The whole thing was very time consuming, though; much more than I expected. I guess the printer is too old, although 2003 doesn't seem that long ago... Anyway, thanks again, my printer is working now.

Re: Driver for hp psc 1210xi all-in-one printer using Windows XP

How do I get the "HP Officejet and PSC Basic Software and Driver" listed on the downloads page?  Apparently it no longer exists.  I don't want the software to make the most of the printer; all I want is to be able to print without having to install any printer-productivity software.  Is there somewhere I can download the bare driver so my computer can print to the printer?
