This is a fairly simple solution, and stupidly enough HP didnt tell the world about it.

Although the site reads 990c driver as the alternative, this is not the case. I have the 6122 and windows 7 ultimate but like you I do not have 990c in my find printer options.

Control Panel > Hardware and devices > Add a printer > HP >
Simply select HP Deskjet 460 or 460c model drivers and it will work.

Apparently the 4 and 6 series have similar driver structures and your printer will work. I have this printer and tested this and I can guarantee you 100% that this works.

Hopefully this was helpful.

Good Call Dude.

Did you let Windows update find the driver, or did you turn this feature off?

I did this before running any Windows updates. I figured the 990c should be stock without but updates in the system but apparently it wasnt so I just went with the 460 series and it worked

Does anyone know how to get an HP Deskjet 6122 with two-sided printing attachement to work?

My HP Deskjet 6122 has a two sided print attachement which came with it when it was new. It worked fine with Win95, fine with Win98, fine with WinXP SP1 and fine with WinXP SP2. Now I come to use it with Win7 on my brand new PC and it will only do one-sided printing.

I installed the alternative driver. My version of Win7 Ultimate 32bit (version 6.1 build 7600) did not include in its list of HP printer drivers, on the right hand pane, a 990c or a 460c but it did show a 460.

I installed the 460 in accordance with the above guidelines and it prints OK to one side. However, I can not select for "two sided printing." I can only select for "two sided (manual) printing."

With the manual 2 sided printing it just prints every other page and then pops a window up telling you to turn the printed stack upside down and click OK - whereupon it prints the other sides. Not nearly as good as just telling it to print both sides and letting it just get on and do the whole lot.

Can anyone help here, or is this perfectly good printer now a waste of carbon?
