I got it working

The Vista drivers for the LJ1020 work but not by a direct install. You have to extract the files to a folder and install by the update driver function.

No, the XP drivers will not work.

HP is stating they are not going to release drivers until Windows 7 RTM is released.

A Vista driver can be downloaded here:

This is for the 32-bit version, you can go back and choose the 64-bit driver if that';s the OS you are using.

You may have to install them as busydog has suggested.

Or you could go to Control Panel > Devices and printer and click on Add a printer and see if any drivers are in the list.

thank you

Did you try my suggestion?

If it's not a driver, what do yopu think it is?

thank you very much
yes I have tried it
but the original driver which in it's CD is better than it
i have tried the both in vista and the original driver work better

It sounds that the problem is a conflict in the hardware
because I'am using additional usb card and the printer connected via it
when I connect it directly to motherboard usb
it work good and the system shutdown normally
