    I had to send my computer back to HP for the third time. They replaced the motherboard for the third time. This time when I got it back, I didn't have a driver for the printer. I bought it as a bundle. Is there anything I can do besides buy a new driver for the printer?

    You should not have to purchase a driver. You should be able to download the driver from the printer manufacturer. So, if it is an HP printer go to the HP support site and search for the drivers for the model of printer you own.
