I am extremely frustrated by HP's response to Windows 7 drivers for the Laserjet 1000. As of today there are over 150,000 hits between this posting and other postings on this HP site. One posting alone has nearly 1300,000 hits, but HP has refused to release a driver. All of those people have an HP product they can no longer use only because HP refuses to release the drivers.
I have been a very loyal HP customer for years including the recent purchase of a new HP laptop that brought this issue to light, but that is over. The only solution to the problem is a new printer. Rest assured it will not be an HP product, and for that matter I will not be purchasing any HP products in the future. It may have been HP's intention to make a very reliable product obsolete, thereby forcing us to buy another printer. Well, for me it worked, but not exactly the way they wanted. The printer is obsolete and I will buy a new printer, but not an HP. Oh, and the new laptop, it is going back!
Thank you HP for your customer support!

I love you all !!
I didn't need to install or download any special SW. I just used what I had.
I installed the LaserJet 1000 on a XP 32 bits with the original drivers. The LaserJet 1000 DOS was also installed.
I shared this printer (and also the standard hp LaserJet 1000 printer don't know if it is necessary) on my LAN.
I went back to my Win7 64 bits and created a local port and point it to \\computername\hp LaserJet 1000 DOS.
Then, Win7 wanted to install a printer and I choosed HP LaserJet 1100 (MS).
I went back to the XP and changed the 1000 DOS printer port from LPT1 to USB.
It worked well as I can see. It's fine for me. Text and pictures came out ok.
I'm very happy! Once again, thank you all.

Has anyone tried to use the printer with "XP mode" under WIN7 ?
Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. It is FREE to download and use !
