Windows 7: HP Laserjet 1000 driver in 64 bit W7

24 Nov 2011   #31

Windows 7 64 bit

I wanted to add that the Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC option will work too but I got frustrated using this option. Every time I had to print, I had to fire up the virtual environment and do everything within it. I just thought this was silly and it took up a lot of my hard space. That in turn decreased the performance of my PC. I eventually uninstalled everything.

I think the Virtual PC is good for running old programs or for testing things in an isolated environment but not just for printing. Try telling a family member to fire up the virtual PC just to print things on an older printer. I also didn't want to go out and buy another printer since the HP Laserjet 1000 is very reliable and well built.

Well, sure it's a little bit "tricky" to use this VMXP solution, but that's what we have so far... I had the same drivers problem with my old Canon 6200 flat bed scanner and I found the miraculous program called VUESCAN capable to make run ANY old -usb- scanner (in any OS). God, I wonder if there's something similar out there for Printers! (Please, if somebody found it, please, post it here!). Furthermore, this solution is good non only for the LJ1000 but for ANY PRINTER without W7 x64 support. So thanks to Itig99 and harpagnornis and we'll be waiting for something better... (With their copyright permission of course, I'll translate this for our "partners in the pain" from the Spanish section of this forum).

XP 64

Well, I am logging in here today to re-research this ancient problem. For those of you hating Hewlett-Packard for its Customer Betrayal Policy, you'll be incensed to know that hp paid out something like a $20-million "golden handshake" bonus to a departing CEO—a woman they didn't like very much, would you believe—the very same year that they lied about their sincerity in producing hp LaserJet 1000 drivers.

My earlier research failed totally with XP64, which was the original quest, although I was able to get the 1000 working with Vista 32-bit. Eventually I found an alleyway-discard Brother DCP 7020 which has worked perfectly with my XP64 ever since. This proves the old adage, "A Brother from the alley is better than a Hewlett-Packard bought and paid for."

For others trying to help here, it has already been said and I want to emphasize, the ONLY printer we are trying to make work is a 1000 hp LaserJet—that and nothing else—because, unlike all models with numbers almost-but-not-quite the same, the LaserJet 1000 is a host-based system working from a different principle. (That principle is one of naive trust in Hewlett-Packard, a company that grabs the money and runs.)

For what it's worth, I'll continue to see what I can do with Windows 7 64-bit and the hp LasertJet 1000. As I said, I failed with XP64. But you never know. And if anyone from hp reads this, please see what you might be able to do in giving your company reason to be able to sleep at night.

Hp 1000

Well for what it is worth I was running windows 7 32 bit and if you manually install the xp driver it works fine.

I upgraded machines and placed windows 7 64 bit on it. I am going to try and see if I can force it to run under xp or Windows 32 bit. If anyone comes up with a solution let me know. This a great little printer and have a ton of toners left so would hate to part with it.

I too have been totally disgusted with the inability to make this printer work with
Windows 7 x64. Very disappointed in HP.

Windows 7 Home Premium

I have a lj1000 connected to a winxp 32. I want to print from a win 7 64 connected via LAN. I did what you said but with those host based drivers it just setup one printer instead of 2 (being the second that DOS driver). I continued anyway and went to the win7 pc and installed a local printer, local port, \\winxp\hp1000, windows update, hp 1100 MS. everything looks fine but when I send something to the printer it reaches the printer as a low level document or something like that.

Any help? is there a way to setup that DOS printer driver?

There is hope don't believe it won't work, it does.

Hi, Kini: Thank for your post and Congratulations! You finally suceed in making work your HP 1000 in Win7 32 BITS, as I notices in your printer's report (x86). The problem is actually to make it work in a 64 BITS system as the mine (and others). Anyway I'll try your trick in another netbook I have with Win 32 bits. I don't understand something: you wrote "The key is GDI.EXE"... How? Is it to be executed? When? I had done the port change and didn't work. Thanks,

You should be able to use the Vista x64 driver. When you install you may have to use compatibility mode for Vista and Run as admin.

Driver here: HP LaserJet 1000 Printer*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

Info on Compatibility mode here if needed. Compatibility Mode

Hey, there's is no VISTA x64 bits drive!!!
