HP Laserjet 1012 & Windows 7
I really need some help someone. I have been trying to solve this issue for almost a year and I'm no closer to a solution. I have an HP Laserjet 1012 printer that I can't live without, to put it bluntly. It's well known at this point that this printer is incompatible with Windows 7 as HP has clearly stated on their site but like every other tech guy that's an unacceptable answer. I have a HP desktop computer running Windows 7 Ultimate and this printer installed and works flawlessly on it. I then installed this printer on my Toshiba Satellite also running Windows 7 Ultimate and again the printer works perfect both as a local printer and through the desktop as a network printer. Shortly after that I tried to install the printer and drivers on my HP Elitebook running the same Windows 7 Ultimate and NO GO! one error after another stating compatibility issues. Then I tried to install it on my Dell Inspiron netbook also running Windows 7 and same errors occur. All of the research I have done confirms the compatibility issue but this does not explain why I currently have this printer fully operational on 2 windows 7 machines without issue and can't get it to install on the other 2. What am I missing? I have been working on this for over a year and now it's more a matter of principle then anything else. ANY SUGGESTIONS???
