Windows 7 hates my HP LaserJet 1200

Windows 7 really hates my HP LaserJet 1200 USB.  Windows 7 is supposed to have built in support for LaserJet 1200.  Windows 7 says the built-in driver is not the correct driver for my device and it won't let met manually install a driver even if I could get one.  Any ideas on how to go about successfully installing an HP LaserJet 1200 printer in Windows 7?

Windows 7 64bits and HP LaserJet 1200 driver via network perfect fix:

1. Control Panel ---> Devices and Printers

2. Add a printer

3. Add a local printer

4. Create a new port ---> use (Local port) ...next

5. Port name ---> type printer location: type (\\FIN-PC\HPLaserJ) ...next

6. Install printe driver ... select (Windows Update)... wait for some minutes and more

7. Select 'HP'... then 'LaserJet 1200 PCL 5' from the list... next

8. Wait for some minutes or more... life would not be this simple if you don't try.
