How do I know if the cd is New enough for windows 7? How can I check ? Sorryin advance because I am not that imputed savy lol.
I suppose that you'd know if the driver installer complained about about your laptop not having the right operating system.
The CD may have a readme. Also, Windows 7 was released in October of 2009. If the CD is older than that, it may well not be for Windows 7.
If you're not up to puzzling it out, I suggest:
Uninstall the package from the CD, if anything actually installed.
Download the installer that I provided a link to. (It's 7.1MB - not too bad, unless you're a dial-up holdout.) I hope that it's the right driver. You have a COLOR Laserjet 1600?
I'm not sure how that that installs, but the usual method is to have the printer disconnected from the laptop (but turned on). Run the installer. Connect the printer to the laptop when the installer requests that.
