OK, well according to the HP website there are NO Win7 Drivers available for that particular printer. Now you could try to install the existing printer drivers in "Compatibility Mode for XP SP 2" however even if you DO manage to get it working, it most likely will NOT allow all functions.. as it is not a Win7 driver.
If it were me, I would indeed obtain a new printer that was instantly compatible with Win 7, I would also entertain the idea of a Wireless Printer as well, this makes a printer much more versatile.

Is my HP 1300 printer compatible with Windows 7? I have the disc but it won't install.


If you cannot find a Windows 7 printer driver from the HP WEB site, then HP consider this printer too old or incompatible with Windows 7. They would like you to upgrade and purchase a new printer.
You can download the HP printer drivers from their supportWEB site. Please click on this link and
select your model printer to download:-http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

If the OEM is not making a driver then your probably out of luck. You may have to go back down to Win XP or sell or return the item. Not all manufactures have caught up with Win 7 drivers so you need to make sure there is a driver for the equipment you purchase.

I upgraded to windows 7, now my hp laserjet 1000 series will not work, how to get and download compatible driver for this new system?


Ok. The following method may or may not work for you. Please remember that only HP can provide correct drivers. Any other unofficial workarounds may work for some configurations and fail for some. this procedure helped a few users to install their HP 1000 on Win 7 32 bit only (sorry no 64 bit support).

If you find that this procedure did not help you, the only other way would be to purchase a new Laserjet or perform a dual boot with Win XP.

  1. Remove any other HP driver fro this printer.
  2. Download HP Laserjet 1000 Host Based Driver from this website and install it. Ensure that you can find it in C:/lj1000hb
  3. Connect the printer now. It should try to auto install but will fail.
  4. Go to Device Manager. the printer should have a yellow exclamation mark against it.
  5. Right lick the HP Laserjet 1000 icon.
  6. Select the "Update drivers" for the printer
  7. Point the Printer to the location C:/lj1000hb. Or if it is another folder, point it to that folder.
  8. The Printer should install and work at this point.
  9. The icon for the printer will not be correct (it looks like an all-in-one),.. but the Laserjet 1000 will function 100%.
Now open any application like Word, notepad etc and try to print from it. If it prints then the printer is working. If there is an error, check if you haven't missed a step or try to look it up online or put it as a question on fixya.

Note that you only have basic print functionality (if it is that is) unlike the advanced features in a full printer driver. Remember to tell others if the solution worked.

I am buying a new Compaq Presario CQ5600Y with windows 7 installed. and an HP Deskjet D2660 Printer. Are they compatible? If not, what printer should I buy. Thank you


Hi,

The answer is YES. The printer is compatible with the PC you are purchasing. The printer box comes along with Software disk for printer to be installed on WIN XP, VISTA and Windows 7.

There should not be any compatibility problems.

Driver required for hp printer 3108


Hi Masifrizvi,

This is hopefully a simple issue to resolve.

Go online:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=447811#N654

Select your operating system and download the driver, often times the cds packaged with the printers only come packaged with a few Operating Systems.
Once downloaded you should be able to install the driver.
