I'm new using Windows 7 and I have an old HP LaserJet 6P, with a USB connection, that I'm trying to use.  I'm not sure if I'm not installing it correctly or what's happening.  When I try to add a device, nothing shows up.  I have downloaded a new driver from HP which says it is compatible with Windows 7.  I can install the printer by choosing local printer and  USB001 (vitrual printer port for USB).  It looks like it loads fine but when I try to do a test print, nothing comes out.  It says there is 1 document in the queue.  Can anyone help with this?
