No luck - same reaction from the pc, i.e. nothing.
When selecting add a printer I get a choice between "only use this if you do not have have a usb-printer - windows installs usb-printers automatically when connected" and "add a network printer, a wireless printer or a bluetooth printer...."
You've obtained the Vista drivers & installed as per hp instructions, which usually means installing software/drivers prior to connecting the printer?

LaserJet 1300 - any suggestions on how to make this work?
Are you sure that the LJ1300's USB port is working?
Vista does have a built-in driver for the LJ1300. The problem is getting the special HP DOT4 port.
Just ignore the warning in the Add A Printer Wizard to "only use this if you do not have have a usb-printer."
I'm not sure what besides HP's printer status monitor will *not* work without the DOT4 port, but it's worth a try.
Alternatively, you could try HP's "Universal Print Driver" for Vista (although it looks like a big mess to me): http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=238322&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=238320&submit.y=9&submit.x=4&lang=en&cc=us
Be sure choose the correct one (Vista or Vista 64-bit) and read the install instructions.
