My good old workhorse has decided not to play. Yes, it is old, but loved ...especially as I still have 3 very expensive toner cartridges which need to pay their way. I've tried the expected things - unplug cable, unplug USB, change USB port. Every time it fails. Now I know I am very mean, and have had this dear old printer for many years - but can I bring it back to life? What do you think?
I think I got a little confused with my expanation. I have just one computer, which is dual boot, one XP partition (fairly new) and one long term Win 7 partition. I should have said I have been using one single Win7 install and have now begun moving things to a new XP partition. I have now begun transferring everything onto the XP partition, with a view to dumping 7 as soon as I have transferred all data and programs which I still want. Have to say I have had to fight Win 7, particularly with my Laserjet, which HP no longer support. I finally got it working successfully on 7, but now it has given up again, which I believe MAY be connected to the delicate Laserjet software
Thanks, yes i do have SP3. And I did get the Laserjet running on Win 7 for at least a year. It just decided not to play anymore. Thanks for your help, anyway. For what it's worth, I will NEVER use an HP product again. They refused to issue a Win 7 driver for the Laserjet 1000, and hundreds and hundreds of people had to dump a perfectly good laser printer for lack of an HP driver..... End of rant. Thanks for your advice Think I will buy a Brother laser instead.....
