    Does anyone know if HP has yet produced a driver for the 1012 LaserJet for
    Vista?

    Many thanks,

    Peter.

    There isn't one on their website for the LJ1012 but have you tried installing
    the XP printer software using compatibility mode and Run as Administrator?

    You must follow the usual USB procedure of installing the software before you
    connect the USB cable to the PC.

    If you have something already installed, remove HP software using Control
    Panel / Remove Programs and delete any printer icon in Control Panel /
    Printers and reboot, all with the printer disconnected.

    Try the HP LJ 4 driver on the Vista DVD. No guarantee- a bit of a shot in
    the twilight.

    I have the even older Laserjet 1010 and not sure is this is correct by
    got my printer to work so thought I'd pass it along....

    Hook up your printer and let Windows tell you it know a printer is o
    the generic IEEE port but can't find it.

    Grab the PCL 6 universal HP driver. (I didn't try the PCL5 driver!)

    Get that installed.

    Goto the control panel and double click the printer icon. Right clic
    on the right side of the screen and choose the add a printer.

    Select the Dot4_001 Generic IEEE port and then choose the HP Laserje
    Family Driver PCL5. This will install the printer - print a test pag
    and you're done.

    As I say, I used this procedure to get my laserjet 1010 printing s
    hope it works for you

  5. Good post. I have a Gateway with Vista and I connected the HP 1012 to
    find that HP and Windows dropped the ball on providing a driver for it
    to work. Your suggested solution allowed me to print a test page.
