I've found another way around this problem. HP makes the best, most reliable printers... they last a long time. However HP is notorious about not supporting those printers after they have replaced them in their product line. After trying vista, I never went there because there were NO vista drivers
offered. Now that I am going Windows 7 64-bit I thought I was screwed.
I have a Laserjet 3330 multifunction printer from 2002 that is used at home and is still going very strong. It is installed on an HP print server attached to the network switch in my home office.
On the assumption that one HP PCL6 Laserjet is much like another... I tried installing an HP M3027/M3035 MFM PCL6 64-bitdriver from the RTM built-in diver list. To my surprise it worked flawlessly... even the manual duplex was supported the same way.
Unfortunately, the scan function still eludes me. The send a fax from your PC function I can live without.
I your case, look at other entry Laserjet printers. the LJ 1200 came after the 1100. I don't remember what replaced the 1200. But try today's entry Laserjets... P1006/P1006/P1505. You will need a driver
to support the PCL5 or PCL6 function in the 1100.
Try this strategy.
