Windows 7: HP LaserJet P1006

24 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 1 and XP SP 3
HP LaserJet P1006

Hey guys, I'm hoping for some help here. I've downloaded and re-downloaded the HP LaserJet P1006 Vista x64 drivers. I've extracted the drivers and manually pointed the Driver Update Wizard to these drivers. However, every time I try to install them I get the following error:
Windows found the driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.

If I then try and add another printer using the driver I get (and it's absolutely stupid I don't get this specific error when actually trying to install the driver through device manager instead of the generic crap it gives):
Print driver was not installed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x000000c1)

I've ran verifier.exe and that hasn't thrown back any errors after the reboot.

Someone please help me. I had that specific driver installed fine before. But I then had to format my PC and now I can't get it installed!

First suggestion...Try running System File Checker to ensure all of the core components of Windows are valid / uncorrupt.

Tutorial Here -
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If that doesn't succeed, i'd either upgrade or fresh install a newer build than the RC...Build 7201 x64 is what I'm using and it's very stable. You can also find the RTM leak out there in the wild as well.

SFC came back negative. Everything is fine there. How do I get a hold of build 7201? Would it still activate with my RC key?

If I can't get the 7201 build I'll look at getting the RTM build. I noticed there's already a hack to allow the RC key to activate it.

:(This printer is about 5 years old. It is perfect for my needs, but HP will not issue a Win 7 driver for it. I REALLY don't want to buy another . I have been given lots of advice, and tried all sorts of options. Once I did actually manage to print something. The printer is a hybrid: parallel...
LaserJet 1012 on x64
I have an HP LaserJet 1012 print hooked up to my 7 x64 RC computer. It does print; however, it prints one page about every 10 seconds--much slower than when it was hooked up to XP or Vista. Is there something wrong w/ the drivers for it? Or is it time for a new printer?
