How to install HP Laserjet 1010 on Windows 7 - x64 x86

HP LaserJet 1010 Printer series

-=how to install HP Laserjet 1010 on Windows 7=-

     At work i had Windows XP OS and a HP1010 printer. I upgraded to Windows 7 and.... Now i got a problem. I cannot find the printer driver for windows 7 x64. It seems HP1010 dosen`t support Windows 7 at all... The printer is very good quality and very economical so i don`t want to change it :) i`ve also tried windows Vista driver x64 and x86 but, when i click print Windows Explorer restarts itself....

Looking through some posts on the internet i got no solution for my problem... until yesterday when a friend of mine got a HP1010 and asked me to install it on Win7x64... and yes! It works!

Here`s the solution for your problem:

  • Start
  • Devices & Printers
  • Add a printer
  • Add a local printer
  • Use an existing port: DOT4_001 (Generic IEEE...)
  • Next
  • Pick HP from manufacturer
  • Select HP LaserJet 3055 PCL5
  • Next
  • Name the printer something to your liking
  • Finish (or so, just follow the prompts)

Here you are!

Works every time! :)
