The possible causes of malfunctioning of my HP LaserJet 1300n Printer

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

What could be the possible cause of my HP Laser Jet 1300n printer not working or responding when connected to a desktop PC with Windows 7 bit 64 OS? I have tried to install its drivers of the printer on the desktop PC and jet still the printer is not recognized by the computer. What could be the possible cause? I tried reconnecting it to the formal computer it was connected to and it was recognized and working alright. It is possible that the drivers are outdated or the OS is also advanced for Printer’s drivers? If the drivers are outdated, which website is perfect for getting updated version because I have tried all means and yet still had no positive resorts.
