    I have the hp Laserjet 1012 and, after wasting much time with differen
    failed attempts, I finally got it to work with my Dell Studio Vista Hom
    Premium 64bit desktop! First, I custom installed the Laserjet 1015 X
    driver from the hp site (fonts and driver only, not the toolkit).
    picked USB local port and the driver installed but the printer wouldn'
    work. Next I right clicked on the Laserjet 1015 printer (default printe
    in the control panel) and under its Properties changed the port to DO
    4_00x Generic IEEE 1284. I connected the printer to the USB port and no
    it prints

    So far so good but, I've only had it for a week. The Vista 64 bit ha
    caused a bit of grief forcing me to find work-arounds for the printe
    and my Epson scanner. I replaced a Dell Dimension 4550 which had a 12
    gig hard drive and 512 mb Ram. I used it 10 hours a day for six year
    without any problems. Then three weeks ago I killed it by trying to pu
    in another 512 Ram. ??? Thankfully, I was able to remove the hard driv
    and use it as an external drive to transfer all my data and files to th
    new computer. My Studio has the Q8200 processor, 6 gigs ram and 1T har
    drive. Overkill for me (I don't game) but, that was the package on sale
    The box seems cheaply made. However, I was buying performance not a bo
    and it is very fast and quiet. The 24" lcd monitor is a lot nicer tha
    my old 17" crt also.

    I am using 64-bit Vista Home Premium (SP1) and am printing on my H
    LaserJet 1012. No need to download anything from the web. Here's how
    did it:

    (1) Use Add a printer to select "Add a local printer"
    (2) Use existing port and select DOT4_001 (Generic IEEE 1284.4 printin
    support)
    (3) Select HP LaserJet 1015
    (4) Click Next and click Finish.

    Everything prints perfectly

    I did this and it worked for my Toshiba Satellite 400 series with Vista
    64-bit home edition.

    Thanks so much. It was pretty easy and I'm brain-dead about this stuff.

    Hi,
    regarding this printing work around, have you tried setting up printing
    preference for your HP LaserJet 1015? I have a HP LaserJet 1010, similar
    to 1015, it prints perfectly, but i can't set up the printing
    preference. Do you face the same issue as me? I am using Vista x64 Home
    premium on DELL laptop. Thanks

    Rgds,
    Eric
