Unfortunately your printer does not officially support Windows 7, but I am able to find something on the HP website that might help.

Step one:

     Determine the appropriate alternate driver. (I'd tried HP Deskjet 1120c and its working on my Windows 7 32-bit, But you can choose from different alternate driver that will work on your PC.)

     Determine the alternate driver that is compatible with the printer.

     Product Alternate drivers

HP Business Inkjet 1100, HP Business Inkjet 1000
HP Deskjet 9600, HP Deskjet 9800
HP Deskjet 9300, HP Deskjet 1220C

Step two:

Install the driver

-Verify that the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable is NOT connected to the printer.
-Click Start , click Settings , and then click Printers .
-Click Add a printer .
-Click Add a local printer .
-Select the Use an existing port check box.
-In the Use an existing port drop-down list, select LPT1: (Printer Port) and then click Next .
-Under Manufacturer on the Install the printer driver dialog box, select HP .
-Under Printers , select the appropriate alternate driver for the printer and then click Next .
-In the Printer name text box, type the printer name and then click Next . The printer driver starts to install.

NOTE: The name of the alternate driver displays as the default name. Change this name to the name of the printer, if desired.




















-After the screen stating that the printer was successfully added displays, connect the USB cable / Parallel cable to the printer and to the computer.
-On the Found New Hardware screen, click Cancel .
-For USB connected printer, please proceed to step three . For Parallel port connected printer, please proceed to step four .

NOTE: If multiple pop-up windows display, click Cancel on each window.

Step three:

Configure the printer
-In the printer folder, right-click on the name of the printer and then click Properties .
-Click the Ports tab.
-Change the port from LPT1 to the newly created USB port, click Apply .

Step four:

Print a test page
-Click the General tab.
-Click Print Test Page .

If it doesn't work repeat step one and change the driver to  
Product Alternate drivers (ex. HP DESKJET 1220c).

If it works... CONGRATULATIONS...
