This thread has been active for several months and none of the responses solved my problem. My solution is as follows: The machine that is hosting the printer must also be upgraded to the Universal Print Driver appropriate for its OS (in my case Windows XP). Once this is done, the Windows 7 machine will be able to connect to the printer correctly. One additional note. In my case, the duplex mode of the Laserjet 1320 was not correctly detected. In the properties of the host computer's record for the printer, I was able to manually select that Duplex was available and then everything was fine.
Good luck to all of us hapless customers.
HP tech support, please take note of my solution and put it in your notes. I'd suggest that Windows Update likely fails because the old drivers on the host XP machine don't have a matching set in Windows 7. Correctly detecting this as an issue and informing your customers they need to update the drivers on the host computer as well would be appropriate.

This worked great for me. Thanks! I just downloaded the driver (I think its because its a 64 bit driver) then searched for the printer through the add a network printer function and told it where to find the driver when it came up saying that it couldn't find a driver. Thanks again.

I just returned their computer back. Same issue and could not print or install the printer and W7 was not giving me an option for it ... and my experience with the Technical Support was even worse. Finally gave up ... on top of it, the new machine could not even recognize the Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard ... for someone that is eyesight impared and has to have the split keyboard ... and their support were not interested in helping, much less make sure that the customer kept the computer.
Not sure why people think that W7 is so great ... or is this some corporate strategy to decide that something is a "commercial" printer that is not usable by regular folks ... with regular computers, and must only be used by business accounts ...
I just returned the computer and it was my worst experience in computers in the past 10 years and I did support for the Internet ... for connectivity and such ... and the guy on the commercial/business side of things DUMPED the call ... I'm sure he's gonna say he hit the wrong button ... all Support does!

I have literally spent 1 year looking for a driver to fix my issue. I finally just gave up and uninstalled windows 7 and went back to Vista. Finally decided to upgrade back and seen this post. Thanks very much!

For anyone out there enjoying the experience of adding HP PCs into a hybrid Mac-Windows environment, I have a few tips. First, it's a good idea to maintain a Windows XP machine in your network and share the desired printers that you want to add to your Windows 7 machine(s). Then either download the specific HP driver designed for Windows 7 or, more likely, download either the universal HP driver or, if all else fails, the Vista 64-bit driver.
To add my LaserJet 1320 via Bonjour (shared, like all of my HP printers on our network, via an Apple Airport Extreme and/or Airport Express), I shared the 1320 over our netork -- simple printer sharing in Windows -- via the remaining 32-bit XP machine. Next I added it via Windows 7 ("Add a printer" -- shared or networked). When Windows 7 tried to add, it rejected the driver but allowed me to search for a compatible one. So I navigated to the 64-bit XP/2003/Vista driver discussed here, i.e., the lj1320pcl6winxp2003vista-64 -- found here:
It worked flawlessly. Then I used Bonjour to add again, which then lists the correct driver under HP as a manufacturer (becuase the driver is already on your local machine). Lastly, you may remove the local version of the printer and only use the Airport-based one.
You'd think that Microsoft and HP would have this transition worked out after the Vista debacle, but I guess not. My LaserJet P2015 actually had a Windows 7 driver, but I had to use a similar workaround on my old LaserJet 1012 (using the 1015 Vista driver). I hope that this helps someone.

This solution worked for me. I went to hp.com and go to HP 1320 drivers and download and select the OS Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit. My laptop is WIndows 7 64-bit. This OS has 3 available driver for HP Laserjet 1320 namely PCL5, PCL6, and PostScript driver. The PCL6 did not work like others are saying but the PCL5 did.
