I am having some problems installing my HP Laserjet 4 onto my new desktop running Windows 7 x64. I have had it up and running fine once, but once I rebooted the computer it stopped working again.
All of my drivers are up to date and there is one that shows up on the Windows 7 list for an HP Laserjet 4. Unfortunately, I think I am having trouble choosing the correct port for installation and now have several "copies" listed under LPT1 (Printer Port) & USB001 (Virtual Printer port for USB):
(same copies under USB001 also).
Whenever I plug the printer into the computer trying to do a fresh install it either shows up as "USB Printing Support" (if I do a Cold Refresh on the HP Laserjet printer before plugging into into the desktop) or "COM340".
I am wondering if anyone knows the solution to this problem? And also how I can delete the redudent copies of the printer once I get it sorted out?
I am connect the Laserjet via USB using a parallel port --> usb cord. Under printer panel (which I'm assuming is the same as device manager) I can remove all of the copies but once I restart some of them still appear. And I am still not managing to get it actually printing properly.
