This seems to be a universal problem with the LaserJet 1000 and Windows 7-64. Lots of other people - folks who love their LaserJet 1000s - are really upset at HP for not supporting their workhorse printers.

I have a HP PSC 2355, and at one time it did worked beautifully with the Vista driver, having full features with the printer when I got my new Dell computer. I never had to use the printer's CD that will only install up to Windows XP. But when I did a custom install of Windows 7 with the upgrade CD, it totally wiped out the Vista driver for my printer.
you might want to check my thread, as according to TOS, I don't want to be posting the same thing here. But you can see the problems I ran into, and am seriously considering trying out the compatibility mode first, before I buy a new printer.
about the HP's disregard for Windows 7 drivers....I wouldn't put it past them to get people to buy new printers...although some new printers will fit Windows 7, it's not easy to find new ones for this OS.
