    There isn't a Win 7n compatible driver and HP has no plans to in future to make it. There is a work around however. Are you able to install drivers manually? The procedure is slightly technical.

You can visit hp.com and type in the product name of your computer and you will get options on the drivers. click download and you will the drivers...whether network or graphics drivers. After downloading you can install them to your computer and see whether they are compatible.

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 have a HP Laserjet 1012 desktop printer. Are there any windows XP 64 drivers that will allow this printer to work with a XP 64 system?


Welcome to FixYa!

HP Laserjet 1012 does not have a driver for XP 64bit.
HP also does not have driver for Windows 7 32bit and 64bit with this particular printer.
They are urging their consumers to upgrade the printer(s) to a compatible operating system.

TIP: If you are going to install this printer to a Windows 7 operating system, try to using the Vista drivers and install it using the compatibility mode feature of Windows 7.

Drivers for Windows 7 may be included in the operating system, distributed via Windows Update hpweb_1-2_exit.gif, or downloaded from HP. Please note that drivers for Windows 7 are available for select models only.
If upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7, many drivers installed on your PC may already be compatible with Windows 7. You may need to obtain new drivers if the previous drivers are not compatible, or if you perform a custom installation and reformat your PC.

Can't get my old hp laserjet 1000 series printer to work with my.


The original solution was to "download the Windows Vista drivers. These drivers will work with Windows 7".

There are Windows 7 drivers available now, so here is the link.
There are two different sets. One for 32bit Windows 7 and 64bit Windows 7.
To determine which version of Windows 7 you have:
Find the Computer menu item in the start menu by clicking on the Flag button in the lower left corner.
Right click on "Computer" and select properties from the list in the contents menu.
You will see under the System section a mention of the System type.57de736.jpg
Download the matching driver.
