Hp 1012 will not print -

My tried and true workhorse - HP Laserjet 1012 will not install with the Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit OS.

There is no choice under add printers and the HP websited does not show a driver for it/Windows 7.

Try running the setup.exe of the latest driver under compatabilty for vista sp2 if it is a vista driver or xp sp3 for xp driver before installing.

Right click on the .exe file of the driver setup, install, etc, open the compatibility tab. You'll then see a check box that will allow you to use the drop down menu and choose one the the modes.

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?
