Color Laserjet 2500 issue on 64 bit windows 7

Clean install of Windows 7 x64.  When I install the default windows driver for a color laserjet 2500 everything seems to go OK.  No errors and the printer prints.  The problem is that the printer only prints in black and white.  When I open the printer properties there are no options for color.   The same printer works fine with the Windows XP.

 

How the heck do I trouble shoot this issue?  I have tried to update the driver to the latest 5.2 PCL driver and all that does is render the printer usable e.g. it won't print.

 

TIA,

Cam

See the discussion below, the one with 10 replies, the answer seems to be to use the PS drivers.
