    The hp officejet printer works when it is connected using a USB wire connection but when i connect it wireless, it shows validation failed. Even after a printer reset, it still gives me the same error. Is it because i cannot find the correct printer drivers for my hp officejet printer? The drivers are no longer available in the hp website so this printer is manually added using the inbuild windows 10 drivers
