Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

Try the steps again but use the LPT port. Let me know if that solves the issue.

Thanks
Sean

LPT was the first one I tried, with no luck.

Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

Are you using a USB hub or a USB port on the front of the PC? If so switch the USB to a port that is on the rear of the computer.

Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

SeanS workaround was PERFECT except that the method of ading a printer in the latest versions of Windows 7 is not the same.  Nevertheless, I am indebted to him and SHOCKED and disapointed that HP does not provide a similar solution for the many people who may have an HP Laserjet 1012 they'd like to use with Windows 7!

 

Thanks again Sean!
