    hpc1015w have to show up in step 7, which will if you downloaded the linked driver. Then in step 9 you have to select between the 3 printer; 1010 HB / 1012 HB / 1015 HB. Obviously you have to choose the 1010 HB.

    Hi,
    I've the laserjet 1010 Hp printer. Now I've e pc portale with windows 8. I would use my printer with this pc. In particular I've 3 pc. One of these has Windows Xp and i've installed my printer on this pc. Then I made a wlan with another pc in wich there is windows vista and i use this printer. In fact on the first pc I've shared my printer so I see this printer with the pc with windows vista ad i install it. Now I want doing the same with a new pc with windows 8. I would use your help but you connect the printer directly to the pc. As I explained before I would that my printer was connected to PC with windows Xp.

    Can you help me?

    For completeness I've connected the printer with pc with windows 8 and in this case the printer go. But I can't solve the problem that I want to connect directly the printer to the pc with windows Xp because I've a LAN in wich some PC uses this printer (as the pc with windows vista) and also because the pc with windows Xp is alway on.

    Thank you very much (and sorry for my english)
    Bye bye

    I suggest you do what I did and follow Atom Ant's instructions at the beginning of this thread. That is what I did and I am not a computer wizard. If I can do it then any one can

    Good luck

    Your problem is more complicated with wirelessly connecting to a Windows XP PC to use the printer (if I understand correctly), so I'm unsure of the solution. There is sure some short of trick to solve this case and maybe Prostar Computer could give you further ideas or tijo who use it as a network printer. See the previous posts and find them.

    unbelievable - it works!

    in local HP consumer service they said that no chance to work with Laserjet 1010 on Win2008, as they didn't develop suitable drivers. Still when followed the instructions described here, my Laserjer 1010 started to work!

    I signed in just to tell you - THANKS!

    It worked like a charm!

    And I was started to get desparate, thinking I'll have to buy a new printer, switch to an older version of windows or just not print for now. I can't believe they make us buy new printers, I don't have a nice words for them so I'll skip that thoughts..

    Thanks again, the instructions are detailed and easy. I just cannot thank you enough. It's so nice to know people like you exist!

    There is no Windows 7 or 8 driver, therefore you have to download the linked Vista driver and follow the instructions.
