It sounds like the printer was installed automatically by Windows and not by installing the printer's driver package and then connecting the printer.

If this is what happened you could remove (delete) the printer from Devices, unplug it from the computer, reboot, and then install the printer software and drivers as directed with your product.

This would also be a good time to check the manufacturer's website to see if there is a more current software package available for download for x64.
