Windows 7: HP Laserjet 5N drivers

I posted a solution for installing 5N drivers Windows 7 a few posts back.

Windows 7 Pro did not come with the 5N driver. The laserJet 5 driver came with the bloatware Windows 7 OS. The 5N is available through Microsoft. The drivers will automatically be updated by Windows BUT you must select the update drivers in the installation procedure.

Window 7 will use the WRONG Laserjet 5 driver when using the automated printer installation. To stop Windows from assuming it knows what is the best driver, you must force it to load the 5N driver.

Find my previous post. Follow my instructions.
This is tricky but my solution works.

Hi

I have tried for over an hour to find the laserjet 5n driver on the HP site. Perhaps they have discontinued it?

Nickdbom, I've been unable to find your post that tells how to install these drivers. Can you repost the directions?

Rt click the .zip file

Unzip them

Open device manager, rt click the printer>Update Driver Software>Browse to the unzipped drivers folder.

[There is no point asking Nickdbom, his last post was years ago.]
