HP Deskjet 1512 printer problem?

Bought this as new installed drivers, the process of installing went fine and my device is ready to use....printer is ticked in printers/devices.......now the problem, nothing works! I try to print, set preference and customise printer and get error message saying device drivers not installed??.....I've tried the drivers from the disk and from HP website both full and basic drivers......everything installs ok but comes back to the same problem when trying to print ie the printer does not seem to be recognized with drivers installed incorrectly...

Welcome polesworth to 7 Forums.

Unplug printer's power cable and usb connection from your computer/reboot your computer/then plug in power cable and usb connection and let Windows 7 find your printer.

I had to do this with both of my printer's(Canon and HP) when I first installed windows 7.
Report back and let us know if this method helps.

Also, make sure the program you are printing from is set to print to your printer and not something like a PDF document... etc.
