Hi naomib and welcome to sevenforums
Try using the Add Printer wizard, selecting HP
and then using the Windows update option and see if that helps. Also, under device installation settings, make sure it is set to 'do this automatically'.
Also, you may try using a Brother HL-8 PS driver
, a LaserJet II clone
with PostScript. It may or may not be slow as a slug with PostScript,
like the LJ II.
I hope this helps somewhat.
