Windows 7: HPLaserjet 1000

I solved this problem once, but my W7 has just had a MAJOR prob with "Security Tool" which needed a (successful) trip to the shop. Unfortunately, they did not manage to preserve all my data & programs, and I have lost the "quick fix" for my VITAL printer. Please can someone post the method again?

(PS printer is a USB hybrid, and Win 7 won't install automatically, as it says there is a security risk from which I need protecting!!!!)

Yikes! Make sure you back up your data, here is more information on using Windows Easy Transfer: Windows 7 features - Windows Easy Transfer - Microsoft Windows.

Please share more information about the specific problem with your printer setup.

Tara, HP no longer support my Laserjet 1000. Before the crash, I persuaded Win 7 to install a driver via a method that I can no longer find. The printer is a hybrid, running as USB, via a parallel port connection, which came with the original drivers.

Win 7 installs, but says it needs trouble shooting, but can't find a fix. Printer shows up in Devices & Printers, with an error.

This is a good workhorse printer, and I don't see why I should buy a new machine just because HP won't offer an updated driver. Particularly as I have recentlybought 2 new toner cartridges...
