Are you seriously telling the OP to reinstall the entire OS because the printer won't work?!
OP, instead of installing the driver manually, have you tried letting Windows do it itself using the Add Printer wizard? It should find and install the drivers automatically.
Thanks for bringing this up Jay (bit about the printer wizard)

This was after various other inputs, I do it as a final thing if theres issue with software and drivers which cant be fixed.
I've tried that but as soon as I press the button it doesn't do anything. I've came to the conclusion that it has something to do with the print spooler service (prehaps corrupted).
Similar to this
Any ideas how I can fix the print spooler service, prehaps something to do with the registry? Exporting from other computer to laptop?
What do you lot recommend? (really don't want to reinstall everything) but thanks Iqbal for the system image recommendation. Good for next time.
I currently windows 7 professional installed in my computer. I inserted the disc like you said Iqbal and tried to upgrade it so it keeps my files but reinstalls my system files
and I got this
