HP color laser jet 1600

I installed windows 7 RC clean because i had the beta.
I had installed the beta over my vista os with no problems with drivers for all my devices.
After installing win 7 RC i realised that none of my devices were installed, printer, scanner camera etc.
When i tried installing the printer With the old disk it re-directed me to the HP site for the right driver (x64).
After downloading the driver it will not install, i tried using the compability to Vista with no luck , i have tried for hours different ways without success.
I really need the printer, please if anybody has ideas to how to get the driver to install i whould really apreciate it.

HP Color LaserJet 1600 problem
I used the Vista driver on my Win 7 machine. The printer does work, but sometimes I have to actually shut down the PC to get the page to complete printing and eject the sheet. This happens pretty much every time when printing from a networked machine. Does anyone else see this behavior? Thanks...
