There no driver for windows 7 till mid November.

1. 1st of all download laserjet 1020 basic printer driver for windows vista. you can down it from this link
2. after downloading driver for vista extract it even exe file with winrar and then go to device manager and then HP laserjet 1020 which is shown as unkown device and right click on it and after that update driver
3. and after that go to folder where extarct vista driver exe and select it .

Hello I have a question I tried this and it gave me the error saying the Drivers were not there, when I in fact have them there and downloaded.
i think you not carefully followed the instructions, give me a day to make & upload video on youtube regarding this problem.

I have the latest driver (released 11/5/09), x64 bit windows 7, 6 gig ram, an HP pavillion desktop.
The driver is buggy as it crashes my print spooler whenever I print anything over a few paragraphs (in notepad).
Vista drivers (x64) and similar suggestions do NOT solve this problem. Once again, I can see the printer + can kick off jobs yet large jobs just crash the print spooler.
