Hi, I have a HP DeskJet 1280 with a driver CD. When I try installing it, it shows the error message saying to use the add new printer to set it up. When I try doing that, I get to the point where I select what printer I have and DJ 1280 is not listed. What do I do?

Try to install it manually, using closest DeskJet driver. Don't use DriverCD if it does not have Windows 10 support. Unfortuantely, HP page for that printer is down, so I can't see whether there is Windows 10 support to start with.

Thanks for the reply. I had a look on other threads and they suggest that the DeskJet 1220C is a compatible driver. The problem is that this also doesn't show up when I try installing a driver.

Go to Settings, Devices/Printers, then "The printer is not listed", and click on "Windows Update" to update the list of supported printers.
Yeah that's what the other threads said to do. When I did this it did not show up. I checked HP, Hewlett Packard and Hewlett-Packard. None of which show it. When I try to download it, HP tells me to do the method that I just tried.
