I have tried downloading this driver and extracting it. However, I cannot figure out how to make it available -- cannot find an exe file. When I go to the Add Printer, it only shows the pcl 6. I have one program that will not print correctly unless I have the pcl 5e driver. I hope someone can help.

Re: pcl 5e driver for hp laserjet 1320
Make sure you can view filenames with the trailing dot and 3 letters so you can see the type of file. (Use tools menu, folder options, view, uncheck "hide extensions for known types")
Doubleclick on the downloaded file and note where it is unzipping to (c:\lj something or other). Open that folder. Right click on the file ending in .inf and choose "install" in the menu that pops up.
If that fails, open the control panel, choose Printers & faxes, rightclick on the HP printer, and choose "properties". Look for the "update driver" button, probably under "advanced". Help it choose that .inf file.

Go to "Devices and printer" and right click on the 1320, go down to "printer properties" and click. When the new box opens click on "device settings" tab and scroll down to installable option and find Duplex unit. Be sure it is set to installed, if not set it. Now your printer should duplex again.
If you are using a PS (post script) print driver, delete it and install the PCL driver (PCL5 or PCL6 if available). May help, not positive. I have seen lots of pdf printing problems with PS or incorrect model drivers.
These drivers are free to download at "support.hp.com"
I have seen some reports of this problem, but I don't know of a definite 'cure", Seems like you've tried the obvious stuff already. My question would be, are you using PCL 5e, or PCL6 driver? The PCL 5e is the most compatible driver, and I know I have had a few strange things happen on different models using the PCL 6. It could just be a glitch in the driver, but I'd try the 5e just the same....that's my 2 cents worth. For simplicity, you can download it here:
