My new computer does NOT recognize my printer

 Shujjat -

I just bought a new computer with Wndows Vista. I have a HP Laserjet 1200 seires printer that my computer cannot seem to recognize. The printer was given to me....worked well with my very old compueter (?) I don't have a disc to intall it to my new computer. I'm not very computer savyy and don't know what to do. Any suggestions out there?

I have a LaserJet 1200 that works just fine with Vista. Go to this site and download the PCL5 driver. Then install it and plug in the printer.

You will most likely need the disc to install software, Most HP company update their firmware and drivers with the IP Address given.
