Hewlett-Packard Hassle with Printers

Note that HP LaserJet Series 1005 Printer is completely different device than P1005 or M1005.
Mixing these devices is a common error. Software drivers for these devices are not interchangeable.
H-P has never published Windows 7 software drivers for their LaserJet Series 1005 Printer.
