Does any one knows where can I download the driver of this printer? On the web site it shows 5 different drivers.

My guess from this page

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF10a/18972-18972-3328062-14438-236267-466639.html

is that the driver is common,  Pick one from your screen above and try it.

It is out of support, so drivers won't be modern.

The Software and Driver Downloads page at the HP site for that device is here:

It should detect your OS automatically, but if it gets it wrong, click the Change button on the right:

Then select your OS and Version from the drop-downs that it displays. Regards, Joe

Yes, true. It would appear they have pulled the drivers as it is not a supported product. Nothing for XP or higher.

It depends on the OS you have, which you didn't specify, or enter as a Topic. If you have W2K, XP, or WS2003, it is there:

You are running W7 Pro 64-bit. Your only hopes are (1) if the drivers built into W7 support it (unlikely) or (2) the XP driver (the latest one they made) will work with it in compatibility mode (even less likely, especially since the driver is 32-bit and your W7 is 64-bit). I think you should consider a new printer — that model is circa 2005 — more than 10 years old. Regards, Joe

It is a very old printer and probably has a hardware fault.

Its not blinking that one. Its the one next to it on left. And the feeder also continuously making noises probably trying to feed the paper.

I tried on 32 bit but it still does the same thing. Also I find a slot on the left side of the printer. What is the use of it?

I recently had that problem (was worse with heavier paper) and the solution was to replace the rollers (of course, the reason that your unit is making the noise could be different from mine). The roller kit cost $75 (will likely be a different price for yours) and in my case it was worth it because it's a relatively modern, fairly expensive all-in-one device. In your case, it may be wiser to put that money towards a modern version of that device, such as the HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer, which is $280 at Amazon. It has up-to-date drivers/software released in May of this year, supporting 32-bit/64-bit W7, W8/8.1, and W10. Regards, Joe

the slot looks like a card reader for 802.11g CompactFlash (Type I) Card, Secure Digital Card, Multimedia Card.

if you read your manual - it's there on page 95 :  
Left print cartridge light – Blinks when the left print
cartridge is absent or improperly functioning. Turns on
solid when the ink is low or empty.

unfortunately I don't have a manual. Also I reset both cartridges but it still flashing. Do I need to hold the ON button for few seconds or something like that in order the light to go away?

This article documents all issues (and provides fixes) for the blinking lights on the 460. Give it a good read:
http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c01182351

My guess is that you have to do some kind of a reset to let it know that there are new ink cartridges so it will stop giving the low-ink warning. But that's just a guess. I noticed that there's something called an ink service module (I don't know what it is) that may need replacing, followed by a reset of the product. In any case, a careful read of that article should provide the answers.
