Hy every one i have recently purchased a new Mac book pro with the following specifications

Processor: ci7 2.23 Ghz
Ram: 4 GB DDR3
Hard Disk: 620 Gb
Mac OS X version 10.6

the machine is working very fine but i am facing a problem regarding the printer installation. i have HP Laserjet P2055d printer. i am not able to install the printer. i have seen the website of vendor and they have no driver available for the device. as they written on their website the drivers of the device are available in the device. can any body help me how to install the printer onto the machine. waiting for the reply.

The printer driver is already included in OS X 10.6. See this:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669#HP

To add a printer queue to the printer list, go to Print & Fax prefs and click on "+" (add). Wait in default browser window until printer is found (up to 30 secs). OS X should find driver, may ask if it's OK to update.
Then finish up. Done. Print.

For troubleshooting, try the printer on another computer and also try a different cable.

BTW - did you do Page setup before printing, to make sure the correct page size was available?
