How to download driver of HP 5L laserjet printer

I have had a HP 5L for years. Love it, it runs like a tank and the ink is cheep. However I have always had driver problems. When I got XP it would print on the upper 3/4 of the page on one sheet and the lower part on a second sheet. I read that if you used an Epson driver (I don't remember which one) it would work and sure enough it did. Now I have Windows 7 which has a built in driver for the 5L. It works fine with Word but when i print from the web or my emails it splits the page the same way as it did on XP (top 3/4 of the page on first sheet off paper and the bottom 1/4 on a second sheet of paper.) Has anyone experienced this problem and does anyone have any solutions?
