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.
