Windows 7: hp7130 printer won't work with Windows 7

hp7130 printer won't work with Windows 7

I hooked up my old hp 7130 printer to my new hp computer with Windows 7. It automatically installed the driver. Whenever I try to print one page from the screen it spits out 3 blank pages first. When I select "one page only" it spits out one blank sheet, then prints out the page. HELP!

I already knew all that, but it doesn't work with that driver.

There are no Win 7 drivers for your printer. HP wants you to buy a new printer.
So try the below with the XP 32bit driver. Most of the time it works.


Go here and enter XP as the OS and download the XP driver.

Right click and select Compatability Mode then choose XP 32bit. Tutorial below.

Can you use Windows 7 Pro + XP mode to make your "older" Printer work?
Hi, As many of you may know, HP is having a "rough time", to be kind, with their printers fully working with Windows 7. In most cases they just release "generic" print drivers and people with all-in-one printers can not use the scanning, and some other, function because of this. Does...
