5000gn? I don't know that one, but HP do have Windows 7 drivers for the 5000 series.

They are listed as Universal Print Driver for Windows PCL5, or PCL6, or Postscript, etc. This implies that there isn't a specific driver for your model, but rather an HP-generic one that will install whatever features are supported by the device it's being installed for.

x32.  That's the other problem.  I can only find x64.   It's a totally funky situation.  I live in Idaho.  Got hit by lightening 8 years ago and the ONLY thing that was not in a surge protector was my router, which was connected to the printer.   Fried parts of the printer.  So in order to make it work again, I had to install a D-Link PS port to the serial.  I can hit the port via ip, but not the printer.

x32 does not exist - it is called x86
