Re: HP1018 printer
Crazy Noddy, thanks very much for your response. My printer is now working
as it should.
I downloaded my print driver from HP's website. It was finally placed there
in July. It worked successfully for 2 or 3 weeks. I believe Microsoft's
last upgrade of Vista probably srewed it up.
