Hello, when I plugged in my old printer to my laptop which has Windows 7 on it. It says that the driver wasn't found. I tried finding the driver download on here, but could only find one that was compatable with old versions of Windows can someone help me locate a windows 7 compatable version?

Try looking for an HP Universal driver for your type of machine, i.e. Deskjet. Install it in compatibility mode for either (first choice) Windows 7 or Windows XP.
This worked for me. No HP driver available for my printer compatible with Windows 8.

@eddie0901, have you tried downloading from the website?
You can try to download an alternative driver (Deskjet 990c) and it should work for you.
(Shane_R) has a great post on how to download it.
Let me know if this helps.
Please mark a reply "ACCEPTED AS SOLUTION" if it solved your problem, so others can find it.

Hello jordanyHD, Welcome to the Forums!
I just came across your post and noticed you are looking for drivers for your Deskjet 5900 series printer.
As I am unsure of which exact printer you have, I am not able to see if the driver is available for Windows 7. If you wish to respond with your model number, I will gladly check for you!
Please click this link and type in your printers exact Model Number to see if there are available drivers for your specific printer model.
