Who installed Vista 64? If you, go back to what the laptop came with.
If not you, return products that don't work.
Notebook with Vista Home Premium 64bit SP1 installed
Multifunctional device: HP LaserJet CM1017 MFP connected to local ethernet network
I have downloaded from HP website drivers for HP CM1017 and Vista 64x.
During the installation process the system is successfuly finding the device in the local network, but after acceptation the printer it spends a long time for "connecting the device" and next displays the message about communication problem.
I have blocked or even uninstalled all firewalls, antiviruses, user account control and even changed regional settings - without success for printing driver.
I have tried also the universal printer driver HP PCL6 downloaded from HP webpage dedicated for my printer.
After installation (universal driver):
- in standard printer mode - it gives a message that the device is not in service by this driver;
- in dynamic printer mode - it is finding the printer correctly but after printing command from laptop the printer shuts down and up (restart).
I have checked the printer (restarted, going back to standard settings etc.) and it works correctly - it is printing from other computers in my network without problems.
Help me please, I do not have idea to fix the problem.
I spent in fight with Vista and printer over 25 hours already....
