I'm Using Windows 7 and have a HP Deskjet 6122. HP doesn't offer a native driver for Windows 7, but tells me to use the driver for a printer called 990c instead. I did that and the printer works with that driver.
In the past with the native for Windows XP, the printer could print without using any ink from the color cartridge. Now it uses colors from the color cartridge to 'enhance' the black - even if I set the printer to print in black and white only. Thus the new driver is wasting a lot of expensive colored ink instead of using the cheaper black ink. I'm printing a lot of text and so the this really matters.
Is there a way to use the old Windows XP driver for printing? Perhaps by using the Windows XP mode which is integrated in Windows 7? Or any other way to stop the printer from wasting colored ink?
