    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 -> SP 1 will make the HP printer LajerJet Pro CM1415fnw to stop working. MS recommends HP driver and programs reinstallation, but it does not solve the problem. The only way to restore printer operation is to run the system restore and go back to the point before the SP1 was installed. Even removing the SP1 will not restore printer operation.

    In reply to “Eduardo Quintana” comment’s:

    SP1 brings that problem with a lot of HP printers as I found browsing the web for a solution. Mine is a ColorJet 3500n and I have the same issue.

    I will remove the Service Pack by system restore and recommend all HP printers’ owners skip SP1 install in their updates.

    Comment update:

    Before doing my system restore, I gave a last try to a solution I had forgotten and it worked:

    I went to the printer properties on the “Advanced” tab I clicked “New Driver” then I choose the same driver and did the installation. Everything worked well and the test page printed. Did a print from Firefox and it worked too.

    So the bottomline is to reinstall the same driver that was used before SP1.
