Windows 7: Hp lj 1320

Hp lj 1320

Hello,

i can't get a HP LaserJet 1320 to work on Windows 7 64-bit. It is a printer connected to an XP machine on the network, when i add the printer, it says, that the driver can't be found on the network, then i can pick a driver from disk, but the 64-bit driver package, that HP offers on their page for this printer doesn't work.
There's also an install.exe in the package, but it just says Installing for too long and does nothing.

Have you encountered this issue?

Here's something you could try:
  1. Uninstall all HP drivers and software for your printer you have installed on your Windows 7 machine
  2. Open Devices and Printers
  3. Click Add a printer
  4. Click Add a local printer

  5. Click Next
  6. Click Windows Update, wait until the list of printers appears (it takes quite a long time!)
  7. Choose HP on the left pane and HP Laserjet 1320 on the right

  8. Click Next and follow the instructions. Connect the printer directly to your Windows 7 computer when told so, not before
  9. When ready and installed, turn off and disconnect the printer from your Windows 7 computer. Connect it back to XP and turn on
  10. Reboot Windows 7, follow the steps above until step 4 and choose this time Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer instead of a local printer
  11. Click Next, follow the instructions given
It should work now.

No, it is not. There seems to be a big problem to install several HP printers to Seven. Windows drivers are in these cases working better than original HP drivers, so a bit absurd but I normally start instructing to install a HP printer by telling to uninstall all original HP drivers!

The complexity of the method I told you is because even when used over the network, your printer needs to have drivers installed on your computer. This method installs the drivers, when you then try to install it over the network Seven already knows where to look for those.

Good luck!

i tried to install the printer as local, it let me choose the driver, it added the printer (even without having it plugged in the Windows 7 computer)
but then, when i wanted to add it as a shared printer, it couldn't find the driver again
i was not able to plug the printer in the new comp, as it doesn't have a parallel port

so this is what i did: i switched the 1320 for a 2015dn, that we had on the second floor and plugged this 1320 in the JetDirect on the second floor

i also called the HP support and they told me, that XP machines are often unable to share printers with Windows 7 machines

I have a HP 1320 connected to my Windows 7 64 bit PC. I have the printer running with a driver downloaded from HP (I think it was) , but it will only let the printer print up to 600dpi and not the 1200 dpi it was capable of under XP. Does the windows printer driver (see above posts) for the HP 1320 allow 1200dpi printing.
Also how best to uninstall the current printer driver if i decide to try the windows driver?
Thanking you in advance.

about the resolution: I don't know if you get better res with MS drivers.

If you want to give it a try, start by unplugging the printer. Go then to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall all LJ 1320 related software. After that go to Device Manager and uninstall printer drivers for LJ 1320.

The Win 7 determined drivers for the HP1320 laserjet installs easy enough and works fine except it wont allow the printer to run at its full 1200dpi only upto 600dpi. 1200dpi is not a selectable option in the printer preferences window. But at least its printing OK. Ive tried getting Windows 7 to update the printer drivers but it says that they are already uptodate.
Almost there.

As a side note, Windows 7 installs a fully working driver for my HP Photopsmart D7160 - all printer options seem to be there.
