Windows 7: Laserjet 4L on Windows 7 X64 with USB Cable

Laserjet 4L on Windows 7 X64 with USB Cable

I have an old Laserjet 4L and want to attach it to my Windows 7 Ultimate X64 system. I attached the printer with a USB cable and Windows recognized the printer immediately and installed the driver. It looked like all was fine, but when I try to print to the printer, nothing prints. The print job goes into the queue and sits there. What do I need to do to get the printer to print?

Thanks for the suggestion. HP's site says that Windows 7 includes the driver. There is nothing else available from HP.

fberlack welcome to SF,
I have the same printer and it's running on a usb converter cable via my 64 bit W7.
This appears to be the correct driver.

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.
