Windows 7: HP Deskjet 656c printing problem. .

HP Deskjet 656c printing problem. .

The last time I used this printer was when this PC was still in its Windows XP SP3 OS. That was some months ago. Now that this PC is under Windows 7 Ultimate, I'm having trouble with the printer. Whenever I try to print something, it prints a totally different thing (usually emoticons, symbols, etc.) as if it didn't understand letters, numbers and some symbols.

I was able to install the printing support software / driver for this printer in this OS but not its printer version's driver. HP's website regarding this product states that there's no software needed to use this printer in windows 7 since it already had a compatible print driver solution built-in in this OS.

What seems to be the problem with the printouts?

I've seen this link before. I did follow it actually. Btw, how do you uninstall a driver for a printer in case you installed the wrong one? I think I may have installed the wrong one. .

unless its listed in add/remove programs, you dont need to uninstall anything. just install the correct driver.
