Re: Hp laserjet 1000 series on windows 7

I recently upgraded my computer to Windows 7 64bit. I have an older model printer (3055mfp) that did not support Windows 7 and my guess is that HP will never put out updated drivers for a machine that is that old (about 5 years old). I suspect your machine is in the same situation, past its support life cycle. What I had to do is install the printer in XP mode on the Windows 7 machine, using the XP drivers. If you are not familiar with XP mode, google it and you should be able to figure it out pretty easily.

Maybe LJ1200  from Windows7 it would work. Start>Devices and Printer>Add printer>choose port>click on Windows Update button wait till it repopulate then on the left choose HP and on the right choose LaserJet 1200PCL5 and click Next.
