HP Colorlaserjet 5
I have a direct attached Color LaserJet 5. Vista finds the equipment and
loads the driver but fails on the print test. The data light is lit but
nothing happens and the page is deleted from the print queue. Any ideas on
how to get this printer working?

Hi Phil,

HP states the following....

I would try the XP drivers and see if that works for you. Uninstall the
printer first and reboot your system.
