I am having a problem installing my HP Officejet L7580 on my windows 7 32bit final.
When I plug it in, it detects it but the driver somehow doesn't install properly and I tried the following:
1-Uninstall/Reinstall the driver
2-Add printer from Printer/Fax in Control Panel
3-Download the driver from HP (Not provided, Reasons: Windows 7 contains the driver needed to install)

Regarding if the printer works, I've used it to photocopy and its working fine. The ink I've newly replaced it as well.

Any suggestions on what might be going on wrong?

Thanks in advance.

By the looks of it, they haven't finalized a downloadable driver for Win 7 yet.

Try using the Vista driver instead.

Most drivers for Vista will work under Win 7.

Hey Viper,
Thanks for the advice, I tried using the Vista driver but it didn't allow it.
This is exactly what happens what I plug in the Printer:
1-USB Device not Recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it.
2. Device driver software was not successfully installed

Please advice me on what to do? Any links to help solve this problem?

Is the power to the printer on or off when you try that? Try it with the power off, plug USB into PC first, then plug USB into printer, wait a few moments and power on.

On your Devices and Printers page in the Control Panel, does your printer have a listing at all?
