HP Laserjet 1200 Series not working with windows 7

I have an HP Laserjet 1200 Series, one of the older ones from the late 90s/early 2000s, and I can't get it to work with Windows 7. Is there a specific driver for it for Windows 7? Every driver mfor any 1200 series laserjet didn't work. Also, do I hae to have the DIMM memory stick for the printer to print?

The driver is built into the windows 7 os. When you plug in the printer the computer should find the driver and load it. If you know which port is being used just use the add printer and when you get to the makers page click on the windows update button and when the screen repopulates chose hp on the left and laserjet jet 1200 on the right and finish up.
