I can't find a printer driver for an HP 712c series printer that works with Windows XP. I got one last year, but have searched endlessly online and the only ones available are for earlier versions of Windows.

According to Microsoft, a driver for the 712c is already provided in Windows XP.

I am asked to install something from Windows XP when I try to connect to the printer, but I don't have that disk.

What is it asking for? Probably a system file that might already be there.....

Using the add hardware wizard in control panel, offer to select a printer from a list. 712c will appear in the HP listing.

Right, but it might be prompting for an XP system file to support it, not necessarily a driver, which is what I am hoping will be answered soon for us....
