    Hi Linda,



    I'm afraid the best I can do is to point you to the HP website that has a link to order a CD for Windows 3.1. It may or may not work. Here is the site:

    Thanks for using Fixya.

You may not be able to use all the advanced functions of the printer but if you have a parallel connection on the printer you can install the HP Laserjet IV drivers on LPT1 and it will print for you.

I think the 20-year old software will not be able to handle the multi-functions of your new fangled printer.

You may need to find an old dot-matrix printer of that era ...

Hplaserjet M1005 software cd is not installing in windows7 home basic laptop


Try downloading the drivers/software from HP website as long as the operating system is supported by HP for your printer model, if it's not then you may have to try and find a third party driver which may prove very difficult, if windows 7 did not detect & install the driver automatically then it may be a case of upgrading the printer depending on how old it is.
I have just tried a check on availability and windows 7 32/64 bit are supported.
As a second point you could try other cd/dvd to make sure DVD drive is working ok.

I cannot load the HPLaserjet 6L on my Aspire Acer laptop. I have the cd but don't know what to type for "Copy manufacturers files from"


HP.com and download the HP Universal pcl 5 driver. That should get you going. That printer is so old that HP no longer made drivers for it specifically so you will need to use the universal driver.

No printing


Well this issue must be related to the drivers of the printer, possibly incompatibility. Let's try to fix it with the easiest method.
First uninstall the driver after the printer is disconnected from the computer. Then run a registry cleaner (click here to download a freeware registry cleaner) to clear any unwanted registry files. You'll also need to clean the system using the feature with this application.
Now download this driver Hplaserjet 2100 windows vista32 (if your system is 32 bit) or hplaserjet 2100 windows vista64. Extract the files to a specific folder and follow the instructions as follows;
Click "Start" , select "Settings/control panel" and click the "Printers" folder.
Double-click "Add Printer".or click "File" on the menu and select "Add printer"
The "Add Printer wizard" will open. Select "My computer" then click "Next".
Select LPT1 (whether directly connected or networked) and click "Next".
Click "Have Disk".
Click "Browse".
The Locate file window will come up saying a: "is not accessible" . Click "Cancel".
Under "Look in" select the folder where the file is saved.
Highlight "HPLAOUT.INF" and click "Ok".
The Install from Disk window will reappear, click "Ok".
Select "HP LaserJet 2100 Series PCL 6" and click "Next".
Select the "Replace existing driver" option and click "Next". (This window will not come up if the uninstaller was used).
Select Not Shared and click "Next" .
Select "Yes" and then click "Finish".
Please don't skip even a step from the uninstall process. And do let me know when you are done.

Till then, Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a x2470 printer and my computer has windows 2007 and it seems there is no comunication between the computer and printer. I've done all the steps from troubleshooting to fix the problem.


Did you:
1) Verify that there is a Win 7 driver for this printer on the www.lexmark.com site.

2) If there is a driver, you must download the driver.

3) Remove the old driver.

4) Install the new driver.

It is imperative that the old driver is removed prior to the installation of the new driver.

1020 PRINTER DRIVER HP


There are no drivers for fixya but I have found a workaround by some anonymous poster


Xp software&drivers will work in Vista after a little tweaking in printer properties.


1)Install the CD-Rom HP Software/Drivers that came with your Printer at the time you purchased it. These Xp software&drivers are Vista Compatible after tweaking the Printer Properties. Reboot after installing.


2)Goto Start/Printers. Right click HPLaserJet1020 then Left click Properties. An HPLaserJet Properties window should have popped up.


3)Click the Advanced Tab. Click the Print Processor button located at bottom of window.


4)Select print processor as>>>IMFPrint. Then Select Default Data Type as>>>RAW. Click OK.


5)Now return to the Main HPLaserJet Properties window and click the General Tab. On the Bottom of that window; Click the Print Test Page Button. Finished! A test page should be printing out if you adjusted the printer properties correctly. Enjoy!


optionally you may have to disable print spooling

Quote "This did not work for me until I changed the option in that same window (advanced settings) to "print directly to the printer". Spooling does not work. "
