|You say you have the disk. Does that disk contain print software as well as the drivers? |
If so, look in Control panel> add/remove programs for that print software. If found, select to remove it. If you then get options other than remove completely you can attempt to modify or repair, as the case may be. If no other options are available then I suggest you remove the software program and reboot.
Then it may help to run a registry cleaner on the system to cleanup and remove reminents. CCleaner has a good, safe registry module and the cleaner module is excellent.
After running the registry cleaner reinstall the printer as per the instructions on the disk.
One other item to note. Verify the parallel port is enabled in the BIOS and is set to the type of port required by that printer. That info should be in the manual. There are multiple settings in the subleading for the parallel port. Like SPP, EPP, etc.
Below is a link to the HP site for drivers and manual for that printer.
