Windows 7: Legacy printer HP Laserjet 5

Legacy printer HP Laserjet 5

ARRRGGGH I own a beast of a printer. It's been the finest printer I ever owned or used. Built like a tank truly industrial strength. Been running my paperwork heavy office with it since 1997.

And windows 7 doesn't have a driver for it.

Any one got a trick or driver source that can make my god of a printer run? It seems the infidels want to depose the old gods and force everyone to worship plastic calves.

Corsair Dominator 4 gig {{3.75 available}}(the one with the 40 mm fan kit that never worked).

When you are in the Add Printer Wizard, select windows update and wait. It takes upwards of 5 minutes to have it return an updated printer list. The LaserJet 5 is on that list.
I have a LaserJet II and it had a driver for that.
