HP Laser Jet 4250dtn - software,drivers & firmware

I am new to the printer scene but I am trying to get this printer going as the printer prints fine without the software installed (with power on) for the first couple of copies but then it starts not to print about an inch or two from the top - there also appears to be some print that is not that readable (smudged) too. Much of the rest of the page is fine.

There are 113,000 copies of usage so far on the printer and it is a little over 3 years old without a warranty. Is that considered a lot of usage over these 3+ years?

My first concern is to get the software installed. I have included a link from HP for the software, drivers and firmware but it is a little confusing to me. It looks like from the selections there is more than one choice. I don't want to make the WRONG CHOICES. I am running Windows 7 64 bit with an Intel i5 chip and 16GB of memory.

I just got this (duplexing) printer. There are three drawers numbered 2,3, & 4. Number 1 is where the competed paper copies come out .... looks like. This printer was used on a network before ... don't know if that has any bearings though.

This almost looks like a multiple choice selection from HP

ops, looks like I can't print the exact location for the sofware choice I found on HP for the software, firmware & drivers for HP 4250dtn


Ok, well I got the printer to work as the drivers & software must have been already loaded onto my new computer. And it looks like it is printing well..... Guess I answered & fixed my problem!! Thanks anyway!!
