Windows 7: Work Around for Printer not working

Work Around for Printer not working

Hi - I'm new to this forum, having just recently purchased a laptop with Windows 7 on it. I'm still finding my way and am currently trying to make my older HP PSC 2210 All-in-one printer work. When I plugged in the USB cable, it didn't recognize the printer or load any drivers (as far as I could tell). I tried using the disc that came with the printer but got a message saying it wasn't compatible with the OS. If I go into the Devices and Printer screen, the laptop shows there but with a checkmark saying it needs troubleshooting. I've tried and tried the troubleshooting screens, but nothing seems to help. I have tried the "work around" for installing the basic printer driver, but that doesn't seem to do anything. What am I missing here? I'd sure like to be able to use this printer as there's nothing wrong with it except being "old"! Thanks in advance for any advice!
