HP-LaserJet-1018: Not installing in Windows10

LasetJet 1018
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello!

 

After installing Windows 1809, Windows does not install correctly drivers for LasetJet 1018.

In Devices and Printers, LasetJet 1018 is shown under Unspecified and I cannot print with it.

Tried removing and then unplugging and plugging again, but nothing changes.

Can you tell me what I can do to fix this?

Can I contact Microsoft in some way, or is there some other fix that you know of?

HP-LaserJet-1018: Not installing in Windows10

Hello!

 

I solved this issue myself.

I found in the community some answers specific to LaserJet 1018 for Windows.

The solution was to go to Devices and Printers, and manually add the printer for LaserJet 1020!

HP-LaserJet-1018: Not installing in Windows10

Unfortunately, when I put in HP Laserjet 1020, the HP website does not give me a driver to download.  I am looking for a driver for Windows 10, 64 bit.  You would think HP would adequately support their older, fully functional, printers!

Hei!

 

No, you should not try to find drivers in HP websites.

You just install it though the Devices and Printers in Windows 10.

Just open Devices and Printers and on top select Add Printer.

Then select to use Windows Update to find more printers and go and find HP Laserjet 1020.

HP-LaserJet-1018: Not installing in Windows10

Hello! I've been trying to instal HP LJ 1018 on Win10, followed recommendation to go to Devices and install printer manually, however found 2 issues:

- There is not 1020 anymore to choose from (there is Laser Jet 1022, 1022n and one more;

- How should I connect the printer to laptop? By default there is LPT, but I don't have one; the printer is attached to the computer using USB socket, but there is no such on the list.

 

Anyone could help please?

 

Thanks in advance!!
