HP Laserjet 1020 and Windows 7

I have a Win 7 (32 bit) O.S. and a HP Laserjet 1020 printer. It crashes the windows spooler and does not print. Tries to restart the spooler with no luck... Tried to unistall and reinstall the rpint drivers too. Nothing works?

Thanks in advice for the advice!

Can you try the print diagnostics utility from there and see if it throws up something ?
Did you install the driver using the one provided by windows? if so, try downloading direct from www.hp.com, look for Driver Downloads and search for the printer and OS driver compatible with your system. Thanks
