Windows 7: HP Laserjet 1000

So this will tell you how dumb I am -

1)How do I make a "system restore point" ?

2)Regarding getting rid of any driver remnants, would that include deleting the folder that I downloaded from HP for the HP LaserJet 1000 host based driver? IE the one I was supposed to browse to? Or do I leave that - since it looks as if you watn me to download it again in a later step. How do I make sure I have deleted any driver remnants?

3)The printer is not currently showing in devices and printers

4)"Then go to the driver web site and pick the one that is for the closest edition of 7 that you can find. Then download to your documents folder. Then unplug the printer and turn it off. Now go to documents, right click on the driver, and click on xp or vista (as the case maybe for the driver that you have) compatibility mode. Then download."

I'm missing something here. The closest operating system for the HP 1000 is windows XP. I did download that into a folder "lj1000hb" earlier. Is one of the files in that folder "the driver" that you are referring to? IE I'm not seeing what I am supposed to right click on.


Thanks, Betta

If you try to use an xp driver, it will not work. You must right click to tell the computer to make the changes necessary to make it work in Windows 7.

A system restore will be made in case of problems. If that is the case we can go back into time and fix it.

Go to help and support, in the start up menu, found by clicking on the start button.

If the printer does not show in devices and printers you are ok. Driver is removed.

Get of any folders that were made because you tried to download already. Then send the driver to the doucments folder and right click.

Forget everything that you did before, start over.

Make a system restore first, in case you make a misake we can correct it.

Good luck

OK, I figured out how to do the system restore point and did it.

I deleted the download I did before and went back and downloaded again and stored in my documents. I went to the .exe file and right clicked. The choices did not include anything about running in compatibility mode. The only things I saw that might be appropriate were:

"Run as administrator"

or

"Troubleshoot compatibility"


Does this make sense, and if so, which do I choose?

Not good if the options are not there it is a bad sign. But it appears that you are doing everything right. Choose trouble shoot compatilitity, since that is the problem.

So far I still haven't had any luck. One of my problems is that I'm not getting the same messages or error messages that you have suggested I should get. When I re-attached my printer and started my computer up again, it did not indicate anything about the printer. So I went to the control panel and it showed my printer installed, with an exclamation mark inside a yellow triangle. I right-clicked and chose to "troubleshoot". But I got a message that an unexpected error had occured, and there were no other options but to close the window. Next thing I did was try to install a similar printer (I chose an HP 2200). It installed OK from the list of printers, but I couldn't fool my computer into thinking that the printer I had connected to the USB port was the 2200. It still knows its a 1000 attached. I also tried right clicking on the 1000 host based download and told it to run compatibility, (which I had already done before, before re-attaching my printer). It seemed to go away and do something, but when all was said and done, it still can't run my printer. Very frustrating.

Why would Windows/MS care whether I have to buy a new printer or not? They aren't the ones selling printers. Do they get some sort of kickback from the printer manufacturing companies ???

Then, lets see what to do, OH yes, begin to print. Hope it works. Nice printer for Christmas if it does.

Edit: I found the xp driver
