USB CD-ROM DRIVES

When installing the hp LaserJet 1000 by connecting the printer to
the computer before installing the software (commonly referred to as
Plug-and-Play) with the Installation CD loaded in a USB connected
CD-ROM, errors may occur.

These errors may occur because Plug-and-Play begins on the hp LaserJet
1000 before the software has completely loaded support for the USB
CD-ROM.

This problem may be avoided by waiting for the computer to completely
boot before connecting the printer, or by running SETUP from the
Installation before connecting the hp LaserJet 100 to the computer.


USB MICE WITH USB HUBS

When installing the hp LaserJet 1000 by connecting the printer to
a USB HUB which also has a USB mouse connected, the hp LaserJet 1000
may not be recognized correctly by Windows. If this occurs, you will 
see an unknown device in Control Panel / System / Device Manager.

Follow the steps below to remedy this problem:
	1. Delete the unknown device in Device Manager
	2. Unplug the mouse from the USB HUB
	3. Reboot 

Plug-and-play should proceed normally. 


WINDOWS 2000 INSTALL FAILS WITH "FUNCTION DRIVER WAS NOT SPECIFIED" MESSAGE

When installing the hp LaserJet 1000 on Windows 2000 the installation may
fail with the message "The installation failed because a function driver was
not specified for this device instance." If you see this message, follow the
steps below to remedy the problem.

	1. Finish the installation by continuing on from the error message. 
	   You will see an additional error message "Your printer is not
	   completely installed until the USB cable is plugged in to the
	   computer". This error message is normal.

	   NOTE: Before proceeding make sure the computer is set to view
	         all files. Do this by double-clicking My Computer, then
		 click the Tools menu, and select Folder Options. Next
		 click on the View tab. In the View tab, under Advanced
		 Settings, select Show Hidden Files and Folders. Click
		 Apply and then click Okay. 

	2. Open the Windows 2000 Device Manager by clicking Start / Settings /
           Control Panel / System. Click on the Hardware tab, and then click
	   on the Device Manager button.

	3. Click on the "+" to the left of "Universal Serial Bus controllers"

	4. Double-click on "hp Laser Jet 1000" to access its Properties.
 
	5. Then select "Reinstall Driver" to open the Upgrade Device Driver
	   Wizard. Click Next.
 
	6. Select "Search for a suitable driver for my device recommended)",
	   and click Next.

	7. Select "Specify a Location". Make sure no other boxes are checked.
	   Click Next.

	8. A window will open asking for the manufacturer’s installation disk.
	   Click Browse.

	9. In the "Locate File" window, browse to X:\winnt\inf, and click Open.

	   NOTE: Substitute for "X:" the appropriate driver letter on which
	         Windows 2000 is installed.

	10. The box under "Copy manufacturer’s files from:" should read:
	    X:\WINNT\inf. Click Okay.

	11. Your computer will find a file named OEMXX.inf (where XX will be
	    replaced by a number).  Check the box that says "Install one of
	    the other drivers" and click Next.
 
	12. In the list of drivers presented, select usbprint.inf and click
	    Next.

	13. Once the Upgrade Device Driver Wizard completes the installation,
	    click Finish.

	14. Return to the Device Manager window. Click on the "+" to the left
	    of "Universal Serial Bus controllers" to expand the entry. Confirm
	    that "hp Laser Jet 1000" is NOT listed, and that "USB Printing
	    Support" is listed.

	15. Exit the Device Manager and the System Properties.

	16. Print a test page from an application such as Windows Notepad.


INSTALL ALWAYS UNINSTALLS

If you are trying to install the hp LaserJet 1000 software and 
uninstall is repeatedly run instead, follow the steps below to remedy
the problem:

	1. Go to the Windows\Temp directory (typically c:\windows\temp
	   or c:\winnt\temp) and look for a directory with a name 
	   similar to {975c8028-51d8-44a9-9585-82e9810fe96a}. 
	2. Select the entire directory name press Ctrl-P to copy it
	3. Run regedit by selecting Start / Run and entering regedit

	   CAUTION: Exercise caution running regedit as corruption to
		    the computer OS can occur.

	4. Press Ctrl-F to bring up the find dialog
	5. Press Ctrl-V to paste the copied directory name and
	   type Enter.
	6. Delete each registry key where the string is found.
	7. When no more matches are found, go back and delete the
	   directory found in step 1.
	8. Reboot
	9. Install the hp LaserJet 1000 software by running SETUP.


BROWSE FOR INSTALL DIRECTORY DOES NOT WORK

Right-to-left language users installing on Windows 98 or Windows ME may
be unable to install driver files to any other folder than the default. 
This is due to a defect in the installer program. There is no work
around at this time. 

NOTE: Only a few files will be installed to this directory and they 
      consume very little space.


ADD PRINTER MESSAGE "... PRINTER COULD NOT BE INSTALLED"

In Windows 98 and ME when you install a second copy of the hp LaserJet
1000 printer driver using Microsoft's Add Printer, you may see the error
message "... printer could not be installed ..."

If you see this message, follow the steps below to install the driver:

	1. Follow the instructions shown in the error message
	2. Run Add Printer again
	3. Follow the instructions on the screen
	4. When asked to replace or keep the existing driver, select replace.
	5. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

When using Microsoft Office 97 on a computer running Windows 98, you
may occasionally get a GPF error when printing. This only affects
pages with double byte characters. 

To work around this problem do one of the following:

	1. Print an unaffected job before printing the affected one
	2. Change the size of the characters on the affected pages
	3. Use Office 2000 or later

5.	DOS Printing Issues

	   properties for the hp LaserJet 1000 DOS printer.
