HP says some Windows 7 printer drivers are coming
Windows 7 users may find there are no drivers yet for their Hewlett-Packard printers, although the company said it expects to release some new compatible drivers soon.
HP is recommending that some of its newer products should be used with Windows 7, which was released Oct. 22. Unfortunately, for some people, that will mean buying a new printer.
"Older products may have limited driver support, limited features or both," according to a page on HP's Web site that provides a list of products that either have drivers available or will soon. "If your legacy product is not listed, no support is offered for Windows 7."
Users have been griping on HP forums about the driver situation for months. In some cases, HP is not developing drivers for products that had drivers for Windows Vista, Windows 7's predecessor.
