Previous use window xp recently have one note book window 7 our printer is not working window 7 processing the method of driver installed

My dear friend, observe computer peripherals compatibility. If you are telling that your printer is working on windows xp that means the printer designed only for windows xp but some printer right now is supported with different operating system. Anyway download a printer driver for windows 7 if it has and install the software first and plug the printer after installing the software. Have a nice day!

Your printer falls under the category of "Legacy" or "Classic" which means it is old. The lack of a digitally signed driver only means that the driver that this printer uses has not been Microsoft Blessed. It may be time for a new printer, my friend.

I need driver for hp 6l pro printer

You can find it here, if the desired operating system doesn't have drivers to download then it's because the operating system already includes the drivers... for example Windows XP already comes with 6L pro drivers included. If your having trouble in XP you might want to try downloading the drivers for windows 2000.
