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. "

Printing takes a very long time


In this case you can bypass the spooler by the following steps:

1. Right click the printer icon & left click the printer properties

2. Click the Advenced tab in the printer properties.

3. Select the option PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER & UNCHECK THE OPTION SPOOL THE DOCUMENT.

4. Click apply and ok.

5. Try printing.

Lexmark z25 drivers for windows vista


You need to go to the Lexmark support site and A) Make sure you are using the latest driver and specifically one that works with Vista and B) If none exist then your existing driver may have become corrupted...try it again (reinstall). Tango.

Spool locks


I had the same problem - to fix it, I disabled "Enable Bi-Directional Support" under the printer's properties (in windows, right click on the printer in "Printers and Faxes", go down to properties).

Worked like a charm.
