Hi Experts,
I spend all afternoon downloading and trying all kinds of drivers but none seem to work.
I have a printer HP Laserjet 1300 on the network (its attached to a xp 32 bit station). The printer is shared.
I need to install install this printer on a win 7 profesional 64 bit that is on the network.
Please your advice,
Regards,

In case you are wondering which of the drivers shown you should install:

HP printers and Windows 7, particularly if the printer is shared, seem to work best with the Universal Print Driver, as liked above.

You're better off buying a cheap print server and using IP printing.

HP has long since fallen out of my graces as a go to product.

Their drivers suck,especially for 64 bit.

No results so far with the HP Universal Driver.
Do you think the printer server using IP printing has any chance is it easy to install?
In case of not using a printer server, what kind of printer should I buy then?
thank you
I personally make it a new requirement to buy network capable printers for home. Very easy for Windows 7 to auto detect.

I conected the printer HP Lasetjet 1300 directly to the win 7 64 bit pc and it installed inmediately and worked perfectly.

then I took the printer back to its old 32 bit XP professional pc, here its shared.

And tried to install it again over the network from the first win 7 pc....
It says it cannot find the driver on the network....

All ideas are very welcome,

For the time being its not an option to change printer in the near future at the office.
That is why its so important to make this printer work for a few more weeks.

Do you think the printer server with IP will solve the problem?
