I need a driver for HP Deskjet 882C for Windows 7 64 Bit

Although Windows 7 does not officially support an old printer like HP deskjet 882C, is there some driver which would work for black and white printing?

The Deskjet 882c is supported in Windows 7, install the driver as described here.

Re: I need a driver for HP Deskjet 882C for Windows 7 64 Bit

OK - so I got the driver installed for my HP DeskJet 882C but whenever I try to print anything (including the printer 'Test Page') nothing prints and the printer status says "Error".  I have Windows 7 64-bit and am not sure if that makes a difference or not?

 

Thanks for any help you can offer!

There are a few things to check.  First, try printing a diagnostic page as follows:  turn on the printer power.  Now press and hold the power button, then while holding the power buttin press and release the other button 4 times quickly, then release the power button.   Does a test page properly print?  If so the next thing to check would be the connections - make sure the USB cable is properly secured.  Running the diagnostics at http://www.hp.com/go/tools may help resolve the issue.
