    I would start by adding the printer manually - go to Start, Control Panel,
    Printers, Add Printer, Local, LPT1, then select the HP Deskjet 5700 Series
    out of the list. Once the printer has been added right click on it, select
    Properties, Ports and select the appropriate USB or DOT4 port rather then
    the LPT1 port it was set up with.
