Hi, I am following this post as I am having the same problem that I am trying to install LaserJet 1300 on my Window XP computer. I see the post indicates IEEE 1284.4 printer support is included in Windows 7. Does that mean I installed wrong printer driver? From the device driver page, I only see driver for XP 64 bits, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and I selected Windows 7 32bits (because I have Windows XP 32 bits system). or if there is IEEE 1284.4 printer support driver for Windows XP can download?

I did encounter such problems with HP Laserjet 1010 particularly because the drivers for this particular HP product isn't quite available nowadays. However i browsed this site's HP Laserjet -Driver and software support for Windows 7
which gave a table of all available printer models and status of availablity of drivers and possible solutions with regards to the installation of your particular printer. HP Laserjet 1010 driver and support is unavailable here though but what I did was to use/download a laserjet driver similar to Laserjet 1010 that is available. Case in point, I downloaded the Laserjet 1020 basic/host-based driver and manually added (installed) the printer as instructed by the footnote
"The Basic driver is a PCL 6 Print driver or PCL 6 Print and Scan driver. In some cases, this does not include an installer (driver only). If after you download and double-click the file an installer does not automatically launch, install the print driver using the Add Printer Wizard."
After doing so, I was able to install my HP Laserjet 1010 printer quite alright.
hope this helps!

By the way, here is the link for the HP Laserjet 1010/1012/1015 host based drivers that I used in the installation of my Laserjet 1010:
Have a great day!
