Re: Windows 7 32-bit Driver for HP LaserJet 1010

I have struggled a lot and got really mad at HP for not creating a driver for a really new printer...but I found a workaround that I am willing to use constantly.

This is how I fixed the issue.

I installed VirtualPC under Windows 7. It comes for free with a number of Windows 7 versions. Under Virtual PC XP I installed 3 apps and the HP1010 drivers for XP.

App one Word Viewer (free)
App two Excel Viewer (free) and
App three Adobe PDF Reader (free).

I also loaded pdf995 in Windows 7 which is a free PDF converter.

I put a shortcut for Apps 1 to 3 on my desktop in Windows 7.

So now when I have a word doc ready to print in Windows 7, I use the shortcut to MS Word Viewer and simply load the DOC file and print it.

95% of my files I print are either Word or Excel. Everything else I "print to PDF" in Windows 7 and now use the link on my desktop
to the Adobe Reader under Virtual PC and simply print the PDF file to my HP1010.

I now can print 100% docs in Windows 7 with my HP1010.

Re: Windows 7 32-bit Driver for HP LaserJet 1010

I had the same problem with the Vista driver installed. Managed to fix it with the XP Drivers. HowTo:

Printer should be offline and Automatic Updates disabled. Othervise Windows will automatically download drivers from the updates.

1. Download the XP driver for HP Laserjet 1010. ( http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=306507&p... ).

2. Go to Devices and Printers and click the Add Printer button.

3. Click Add a Local Printer.

4. Check Use an Existing Port: LPT1.

5. Select Have Disk and Browse to the location where you have downloaded the XP driver. Select HP1010U.inf file.

6. It will give you an error. It is because the local Printer spooler service has stopped. Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services and in the list find Printer Spooler service and with the right click select start. Now go back to the window for installing the printer and click next. It will give you an error that a printer with the same name already exists. Click cancel, go to Devices and printers and refresh the page. You should find the printer with the name you gave. Now right click the Icon, select printer properties and in ports select Dot4.

7. Turn on the printer. Windows should now find the driver for it.

8. When installing the printer on the network you will get the error like in step6. Just restart Printer spooling service on the local machine and it will work.

Cheerz!!!

Re: Windows 7 32-bit Driver for HP LaserJet 1010

The LaserJet 1010 is just a generic PCL 5 printer on a DOT4 usb port. Which means that any other generic PCL 5 printer's driver will work fine.
I used LaserJet 3050's driver because it's included in my Windows 7 64bit.

1. go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers
2. Add a printer, add a local printer
3. Use an existing port - DOT4 001
4. Choose HP 3050's driver from the list

Anyway, it's a shame that HP forgot about this printer

At the very least turn off the printer, it will reset. So far HP has not seen fit to suport this machine, too bad it is a great business machine.

ขยายความอีกหน่อย ปริ๊นเตอร์รุ่น HP LaserJet 1010 จะรองรับถึงแค่วินโดว์ XP นะครับ หากท่านใดใช้วินโดว์ 7 ให้ลง ไดร์เวอร์ HP Laserjet 3050 PCL5 แทนนะครับ สามารถเลือกได้จากไดร์เวอร์ในเครื่องได้เลยครับ โชคดีทุกคน ถึงเครื่องจะเก่าแต่คนก็ยังเก่งครับ ฮ่าๆ ดีใจๆ ขอบคุณเจ้าของคำตอบแรกที่ให้ความกระจ่างผมนะครับ คุณ Track-R ขอบคุณที่แบ่งปันครับ

Re: Windows 7 32-bit Driver for HP LaserJet 1010

  1. DOT4 001 is not showing up under existing port list. There are COM, LPT etc ports.
  2. I created new port and typed DOT4 001 .. then the whole list of printers showed up. Then I installed HP 3050 PCL5 (hp) file. Again there were 4 options. So not sure it was correct guess?
  3. Then Printer got installed, but test page do not come.
  4. I tried installing fron network printer, that do not detect Hp Laserjet 1010
  5. The HP installation CD do not work, it does not detect.

 

I have Windows 7 .. what next precautions are required in installing printer "being used in the network" ?

 

Will this protocol work for Network computer's printer's installation, and if DOT4 can work only on USB?
