    but couldn't complete the installation until i remove printer usb form my pc
    after I'd finished the installation I installed it's driver and it works but with some problems
    it sometimes doesn't print
    but when the printer connected and turned on I cannot shutdown
    it freeze when after log off :confused:
    and while the printer turned off pc works good
    and the printer works very well on windows xp

    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:

    Select software and drivers*

    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.

    Did you try my suggestion?

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

    thank you

    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
