HP pavilion dv7 with HP deskjet 3052A - Printer makes computer crash.

My old printer crapped out so I bought a new Deskjet 3052A printer. Installed software off CD provided and tried out the printer and it made my computer crash. Tried re-installing and same result. Thought maybe it was a faulty printer and took it back and exchanged it. Same results with new one. Tried dowloading drivers and installing that way and troubleshooting but cant get it to work. Laptop has more than the minimum requirements, its new and I haven't had any trouble with it until this printer. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thanks, Scott.
