Like thefabe stated, filling in your system specs will help us help you better. Anyway the driver page for your printer is right here. Select your 32 or 64 bit and install them and get back to us to see if they work because it may be an issue with setting(s) in windows, though having updated drivers is recommended either way.

Thank you very much for your attempted help.

I am having the same problem as the original poster.
I am running Windows 7 - 32 bit
I have been to the link provided. It says:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LaserJet 6L:
Category 3 - Windows 7 print driver available
LaserJet model specific printer drivers are currently available within the Windows 7 operating system. Installation of these drivers can be performed via Devices and Printers , formerly known as the Add Printer Wizard .
NOTE: If the model specific driver that you are looking for does not appear in the list of available printers, clicking the Windows Update button underneath the list of available printers may provide additional drivers to choose from. Requires opt-in to Microsoft Windows Update and internet connection.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THIS IS NOT TRUE FOR ME. There is NO LaserJet 6L driver in the list. And clicking on "check for recent updates" yields nothing useful. Everyone wants to say "Just run the "Add Printer Wizard" and follow the instructions and everything will work fine. Not true in this case.

We're asking for the LaserJet 6L printer driver for Windows 7 - 32 bit because it's NOT in the list under "select your printer"

I'm asking for the 32 bit driver because I'm running Open Office Suite, which I know runs only under 32 bit mode at this time.

There is no LaserJet 6L driver at the link provided and NO LaserJet 6Ldriver in Windows 7

I hope I'm not overdoing this. But sometimes people just don't seem to clearly understand the question.

Microsoft Update Catalog

This is the link to the MS driver site. I have searched it and found a laserjet 6L driver for Windows 7. You will need to use IE to access this site as it installs an activex control to utilize.

Thanks, I followed the link and did all the stuff MS wanted. What I download is a .CAB file I found the hp6l.gpd file amoung the 517 files. Windows say's it does not know how to open it (after "checking on the internet") I don't think this really qualifies as a standalone driver. But thanks for the help.http://www.sevenforums.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

HP LaserJet 6L Works in Windows XP and Windows 7

From: San Jose, Costa Rica.

Yes. You can print with the HP LaserJet 6L in Windows XP and Windows 7.
I cannot get credit for this tip, since I obtained it from someone that kindly posted the answer somewhere else. I did plenty of research to solve this problem.

The solution is simple and works 100%:

1. Install the LaserJet Printer driver for your operating system. If you have Windows XP, the driver will appear in the Add Printer Driver option. If you have Windows 7, the driver will not be available until you perform the Search for Drivers (online) Option. It may take a while for the installation to finish, but it will be installed.
2. Although your computer may not have a Parallel Printer Port, select Parallel Printer Port as a default setting while installing the HP LaserJet 6L Driver. DO NOT change the configuration setting of the HP LaserJet 6L Printer Driver to USB even though you will be using a USB Port in the end.
3. Once the driver has fully installed, go to Devices & Printers in Windows XP or Windows 7, and Right Click on the Printer Driver Icon. Select Printer Properties; Click on the Ports Tab; Click a CheckMark in any of the USB Port boxes that are available in your computer.
4. Click the Apply Button.
Your printer will print from here on in Windows XP or Windows 7. I have tried this myself on both of these operating systems. One on a Desktop Computer with Windows XP. The other on an HP Mini 110-1125nr.

i got mine to load off of the driver on windows update, printer is connected to a linux computer and is shared out.

i clicked, add printer, add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer, click the printer that i want isn't listed, select add a printer using a tcp/ip address or hostname and then next, type host name in second box and uncheck query the printer and automatically select the driver to use, i selected hewlett packard jet direct as device and next, then click windows update and then find the printer.

now you can add the printer the normal way and delete the one that was loaded.
