HP doesn't have the drivers available for windows 7 cause its only in Beta and they won't have it until windows 7 becomes official and available in stores. The only chance would be if you go into the control panel and then add printers. See if in there it has your make and model of your printer. If it doesn't then try a printer that is similar and it might install it. If you still can't get it to install then you'll have to wait for HP to come out with a driver for windows 7.

Unplug the unit and remove the paper tray. Flip it over. Be careful of the floppy paper catcher--don't let it break off as you're setting the printer down.
Look towards the back of the unit, and you'll see a dark grey to black rubber tread about 1.25" long, in the center of a shaft. This is the gripper that pulls the paper into the unit. It needs cleaning.
I used VHS tape head cleaner (amazing--I still have a VCR!) but you could use rubbing alcohol. Put a few drops on a Q-Tip and scrub away at all surfaces of the rubber piece. It won't move, rotate, etc. and don't try to make it do so. The swab will get dark. Use the other end of the swab to scrub the piece dry. Pick away any loose cotton.
Turn it back over, plug it in, and it'll probably work. Did for me after much frustration that I thought was due to bad paper or my paper getting weird from humidity. I didn't think it was a roller, because I had hardly ever used the printer, but that may have been the problem...

I had the same problem. I called HP and went through the steps they had asked me to go through to fix it. It took about an hour. Nothing worked. They offered me a replacement. I said no, and they offered me a $150 gift card for Staples.

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step
procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the
scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print
process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints
out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the
paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the
printer "paper jam".
Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently
clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined
Good luck & God bless!
