I bought 4-5 years ago a laserjet 1012. It works like a charm and print around 1 page every 5 secs. Now I installed windows 7 Enterprise and there are no drivers for it, hp even states they wont ever make drivers for the printer in Windows 7.
Now I downloaded the Windows Vista drivers and installed these instead and now the printer works, only he prints very slow, like 1 page every 25 seconds.
So I suppose there is just a setting wrong somewhere, but I have checked all printer settings and couldn't find what it is.
Any one has a idea how to solve this issue ?

Same problem here. Running Windows 7, 64 bit with a LaserJet 1015 driver forced in. Initially printed very fast with a 3055 driver, but that stopped working a week ago when "Unsupported Personality: PCL" began printing out instead. Then I switched to the 1015 driver and got the long delays. The printer worked fine under Vista before I upgraded to 7, and still works fine with my older computers.
Appreciate any suggestions.

Try installing as Laserjet 1300 PlC 5
Open Control Panel
Right click your 1012
select the ports tab
*note the port used by your 1012
Click add a printer
Select add a local printer
select use an existing port
drop down and select the port used by your 1012
scroll left column to HP
scroll right column to HP laserJet 1300 PCL5
Click next and continue installation
Works well for me.
Got this on the Amazon.com reviews of HP LJ 1012
Why does HP not tell us that apparently the internal of the 1300 and the 1012 are similar form a driver perspective but there is a "real" vista driver for the 1300?
