Am trying to install a HP Laserjet 1012 to work under Windows 7- 64 bit and at HP Support, could find drivers for Vista -64-bit only.
I have tried to install this Vista - 64 bit driver and it does not seem to even print a test page.
Is there some other tweak that I need to make or
does it mean there will be no driver specifically usable for Win - 7 and I might as well junk the printer?
Thanks in advance.

Gee. You guys are on the ball! Thanks for the prompt reply, Manjunath.
The disappointing part is, after going through the Devices and Printers -> Add Printer -> Local Printer -> USB001 -> ... this printer i.e. Manufacturer: HP and printer: Laserjet 1010 Series is not even listed in the Windows 7 system's list of printers.
Hence I tried to use Have Disk button option in that window and then tried tio link the inf file in the unpacked extract of the file : lj1010serieshb-vista64.zip hoping that the Vista-64 drivers might work. The printer does install an icon in Device and Printers folder, but does not even appear in the list of printers, when I go to print a Notepad created file.
Hence this query in the forum. May be you guys have some tricks up your sleeve...
