Old HP printer on something newer than Windows XP

Hi!

 

I just found this old printer and I want to use it on Windows 10, but there are only drivers for Windows XP and older. Is there a way I could hack up some sort of driver to work with the printer? (If you are suggesting to buy a new printer, please don't)

 

Best regards,

M

 

P.S.: the printer is an HP Laserjet 1005.

How do I install it? I went to Device Manager and it refused the driver. Perhaps the driver is not compatible with HP printers? Also, I don't want to even try the Lexmark driver, because:
