How to configure hp 1280 network driver 64 bit windows 7

Hello,
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system. I already had hp 1280C printer in my office. I am unable to connect to it through network because the drivers are not matching to the latest operating system. Can I still install and configure my hp 1280 printer in my laptop using any of the compatible printer drivers.

  1. I'm pretty sure that Windows 7 provides an HP 1280C driver. Press "Windows Update" on the "Add Printer" dialog to make sure that you have downloaded the latest drivers.
  2. HP has a Universal driver for older equipment if the 1200 series Business Jet driver in Win7 doesn't do the trick...

  3. You don't need to download any driver. I tested this solution in Windows Vista (x86 and x64) and in Windows 7 (x64) too.

    Do the following:
    1. Go to Devices and printers on the Start Menu
    2. Click in the button Add printer (in the tool bar)
    3. Click on Add Local Printer, in the new window.
    4. Use the settings: "Use an existing port: LPT1: (Printer Port)". And click on the Next button.
    5. Choose the Manufacter: HP and printer: HP Deskjet 1220C. After that click on Next.
    6. Now that you have the printer added, go to the Devices and Printers window, that you opened in the 1. and click with the right button in the printer that've added and click on Printer Properties.
    7. Go to the Ports tab.
    8. Select the port USB001 and click OK.
    9. Now you can use the printer!!
