Dear HP 1000 user:
Please note that this is a USER forrum. We DO NOT work for HP nor do we represent them. So, we cannot fix a problem that HP choses not to address. However, we can tell you how we have been able to get the LJ1000 to work in Win7 under some circumstances.
At this point, it appears that this printer will NOT work with the 64 bit Win 7 version as there has never been a 64 bit dirver for the printer ever created by HP. If you are running Win 7 64 bit it would appear you are out of luck.
If you are running 32 bit Win 7, ignore the fact that HP says the printer is not compatible with Win 7 and follow the instructions either in my previous post or in other posts which give detailed steps to get this printer to work.
Without giving us any more detail that you have, this about the best we can do to help you use your LJ1000 with Win 7.
Best of Luck.

I have just succesfully found a solution to making the laser jet 1000 work under windows 7 64bit
The trick is that you need a GDI driver and finding a supplier ( other than HP ) who has built one.
Go to the following link and download the windows 7 64 bit driver for the following printer
search desktop printer -> magicolor 2430DL ->drivers -> windows 7 64bit
KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2430DL
install the drivers
Add the printer as you would normally and then
under printer properties select advanced and under print processor select winprint raw
The reason this works is that this printer uses the same hardware GDI engine as the lasjet 1000

The way I have it set up is that my laserjet 1000 is plugged into a seperate old PC running windows 2000 with laserjet 1000 drivers loaded on it as its shared by various household computer ranging from Macbook to XP and now windows7.
I connect to it on windows 7 by adding a local printer and direct mapping it by creating a new port and putting in the box
\\servername or ip address\printersharename
set up the properties as I precviously described and it works fine
Note direct USB connection does not work
If I have some time to kill , I'll see if I can get the direct USB to work

Turns out this fix is not as good as I thought
It prints text ok but leaves out images.
So in summary
this is a partial solution.
As the Konica Minolta series was th only other similiar printer I am aware of, I would recommned people abandon this printer. I may get around to investigating further but the time and effort to fix this is probably not worth it given the cost of a replacement printer

So has anyone produced a fix for this for the Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit version, for an HP1005? Connected by USB?
I've read all of the above and think the answer is no; and have asked HP and not had a helpful reply.
