    About 3 months ago I purchased a new HP wireless printer. Last week I purchased a new laptop with Windows 7 OS. Wel,l I went to try to install the printer with the startup CD and it said that it was not compatible with this OS.

    I looked at the startup CD for the printer and it said it was for W2000,XP,Vista,Mac,OS, and X.

    Does this mean that I amout of luck as for as using this printer with my new laptop or is there some way to install the printer online so that it will work with Windows 7? Seems kind of a rip if I can't use a printer that is only 3 months old with my new laptop.

    Thanks for any help or advise.

    I'd go to HP's website and see if they have a driver download for that model printer.
