Checking supply status for Color LaserJet 2550n on Vista or Windows 7

I have a Color LaserJet 2550n and am using the PS driver with Windows 7 64-bit.  It prints in color, but the Features still shows "Color: No" for the printer.  And whenever I print, it shows the print job in the lower right corner with a supplies status, but only shows the black toner.

 

How do we check the toner status with Windows 7?  The web page of the printer does not show supply status.  The older Windows XP drivers included a Tomcat-based application that showed the printer status with great detail.  But with Vista and Windows 7, that driver would not work.

 

Other than printing the supply status page from the printer, is there some other utiltity that does what the old Windows XP drivers for this printer showed?  Or at least have the Universal Print Driver show the color toner status like it does the black toner?

 

Thanks...Tom
