Deskjet F4180 - Black and White + Dual-sided printing

Hello all,

 

Ever since I upgraded my computer from XP professional x86 to Windows 7 professional x64, my Deskjet F4180 has not been working properly.

 

I am trying to create custom printing settings (or modifying an existing one)  with the following settings:

Paper sizes: Letter

Paper type: Plain

Print quality: Fast Draft

Print on both sides: Manual

Pages per sheet: 1 page per sheet

Print in grayscale: Black ink only

 

The issue is that I am unable to select both "Manual" for "Print on both sides" and "Black ink only" for "Print in grayscale".  I am able to select them individually if the other is not defined, just not together.

 

I have reinstalled the driver numerous times, and also tried Windows 7 Starter x86 without success.

 

Any ideas what might be causing this behaviour?

It is only a shame on HP. They force people to use the color cartage ink to print black documents when we need only fast draft option in double side printing. IT IS A SHAME.
