Windows 7: HP Laserjet Professional M1212nf MFP is not listed as option

HP Laserjet Professional M1212nf MFP is not listed as option

I'm trying to install a HP Laserjet M1212nf MFP, and when the HP printer options are displayed after being updated this printer is not listed as an HP option. Does any one know why? Or a work around? I've attached a screen capture showing the list of HP printers with the printer in question omitted.
Thank you

Thanks for the link, can you (anyone) tell me about PCL?

Thanks for responding!
I have 2 printers, a HP Laserjet 1320, which is misbehaving, and I hope to fix it using PCL5 via Quick Basic. I've never done this before, and am asking for some experienced advice.
I'm currently downloading the HP Laserjet Professional M1212nf MFP driver, but am wondering if you can add a printer without identifying the model in the "Add Printer Wizard", even though you have the correct driver installed?
Thank you!

You should not need to use the Add Printer ... The Download should solve that issue ...

As for your other issue i would start a new Thread .. Would get a better response that way ..
