Driver that drives me crazy!

I have been troubled by snail pace old CPU, this is blessed by my ex-brother-in-law, it is already the 2nd unit he gave to me, many thanks to him.
But as time goes by, this one has becoming terribly slow, it took up a lot of time for just one command, I am getting very frustrated about it, and the printer can't seem to have it work done too. I prayed for a replacement.
I saw a friend posted in Selangor Garage Sales Corner in facebook group last week, selling used CPU for RM 300, picture showed the mother board and it looks cool to me, (I know it sounds funny, but I really don't know much about PC thingy, all at my first impression was: 'Nice!', though later I found out from PC shop worker this is an 'antique' jor! XD it is still worth the price. ) I am sure is a privilege as an admin of the group, quickly commit to get this unit.
This purchase came with many free stuff, so good of him, Len, also my ex-primary school friend. Gab and I happily got home, he helped me to fix old hard discs, DVD player in it, which he did a good job, Gab even sacrifice our dinner outing, willingly stayed home to finish this job. Somehow, there was a problem with the start-up button, he had given many attempts to try to fix this, eventually doze off before I got home that very night. Hence we sent to Bao's shop to fix it the next day. Bought a new casing to have this problem solved, the worker also helped installing software that we both needed.
Gab and I very excited about our 'new' CPU, so quiet so fast.
However, Hp printer is still the same old problem, I can do scanning, I can't print documents, driver is missing, I need to update Windows to get driver from the update, then... the only problem I have is: I can't update my Windows.

These few nights, I tried to search for FREE downloads HP printer driver, I even download different series that I could get online, non of them works, most of them pup-up a window saying I have to get my Windows update in order to also 'update' printer driver.

I was so crazy and frustrated over this driver issue. I almost wanted to curse HP and Windows, what a conspiracy they have had. I hate them!!

I am so thankful of those friend put in effort to help and suggested ways to solve this issue.
This friend Len really a genius, not only he offered to bear 1/2 the price on the new casing (which I rejected the offer), he also helped me to get HP driver, I really don't know how he managed to get them, it was just awesome. The procedure is not that short description, he did try many ways, and sent files to me a few times, until they work.

As I am not a PC lady, I did spend quite sometimes to figure out how to 'run' those files,  I have to give a little praise to myself, pat pat, I have done a good job too! Wonderful!

Now, I can print my scores, recipes, tutorials, Kingdom Kidz Lesson Plans.... and all that I need. Thankful for everyone, thankful for God that He places so many angels in my life. Praise You Lord!
