Windows 7: HP Deskjet 980c Driver Found

HP Deskjet 980c Driver Found

After much trial and error, I've succeeded in finding an alternative driver for my HP 980cxi.

Windows 7 offers only one of it's standard drivers as being compatible, thereby losing a lot of options including double-sided printing.

In the drop-down list during printer installation, tell Windows you've got an Officejet Pro K550 Series and it's back to normal

There are more settings to play with with this driver... I think I've got it right now

Thanks for the tip. I've just bought a PC with Win7 installed and found that I'd lost the duplex facility on the DeskJet 980cxi when the default driver was used. It didn't allow me to use the XP driver, either.

The K550 driver you suggested sorted it!

Very useful tip. Solved my problem as well. OfficePro K550 driver allows me to print duplex on a networked HPDeskjet 980 cxi printer. Thanks
