Re: Laserjet 1000 in Windows XP 64-bit

32 bit drivers won't work in 64 bit systems. I think you're out of luck on this one. I took a look at the drivers download page, and it's not supported for XP 64 bit nor for Vista 64 bit (if you follow the link).

Complicating your problem a bit is that the 1000 is one of HP's host based printers. They don't use "drivers" but instead use host based software (containing a driver component). They process all print jobs on the "host" (your computer), and only a fished dot pattern is sent to the printer, so you need host based software designed for your OS and the printer model.

About the only thing I can think of you might try is to perform the Add Printer function and when you get to the manufacturer and model page, select HP in the left pane, then look at all the models in the right pane for the laserjet 1000 (all because the list in the right pane isn't in any discernable order). I'm skeptical it will be in there, but it's worth a look.

How about Windows 7? Will this printer work in Windows 7?
