    HP 1012 laserjet

    Hi. This is my first post. Please be gentle! <g>

    I have a new toshiba laptop (A135-S4487) which I LOVE!

    It came with Vista Home Premium. Also Windows Live OneCare purchased and
    installed. I have a little wireless network with a desktop running Windows xp
    Media Center hardwired. My old laptop, also a toshiba run windows xp. I have
    a print server (netgear) so that I don't have to the desktop powered on all
    the time to print from the old toshiba.

    I have an HPlaserjet 1012 printer.

    I could not set it up through Vista. HP does not have the new driver. Vista
    driver does not work. The CD stops installing even with User account control
    turned off.

    I WAS able, through this community, to set the printer to work on the vista
    laptop through the print server and the desktop - I installed the new port
    and it is named for the desktop. But it has to be powered ON for me to print.

    Is there another way to do this so my desktop does not have to powered ON?

    Thank you very much!

    Sorry for the wordiness - just wanted to be clear.

    You might try not letting the CD run on autoplay but to open it in My
    Computer and right mouse click on the autorun.exe file and select Run
    as Administrator.

    No idea if that would help in your case but it has helped me install
    other non-VISTA applications.

    Actually, that is the way I have to run it - it does not start in autorun on
    its own - it crashes later when it cannot find the print server it think

    But thanks!

    Have you installed a VISTA driver for the print server?

    http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_f...ta_printserver

    I don't know much about using print servers so I hope someone else can
    help you.

    I would imagine you may have to make the printer and the print server
    shared?

    I use hp 1012 with a dlink wireless printserver. In my case, I setup the printer just as I would do in XP, except that I have to use the vista's hp 1015 driver. No other softwares, or other drivers. After several usage, I get the error 'unsupported personality'. Then I have to turn the power off for couple seconds, and turn it back on, and it works fine for a while again.
