Printer was fine for several months after installing Windows 7/64 but now will not print multiple copies.

Bill, this problem is not specific to Vista or to 64 bit systems. It is caused by an HP printer option called Mopier Mode being enabled by default. This mode causes only 1 copy to be sent to the printer which should then use its internal memory to print the multiple copies. If there is no suitable internal memory only the 1 sent copy gets printed. To disable Mopier Mode in Vista: Click Start; Click Control Panel; Click Printers; Right click your Laserjet printer; ClickPrinter Properties; Click the tab Device Settings; Scroll down to the bottom; Click onMopier Mode which is the last of the Installable Options; Click Disable in the selection window that appears; Click Apply. You will now get multiple copies when you request them. Regards, Rob.

Sorry none of these methods worked but I did find a 'work around' that, although not satisfactory, works.
The only way I can change the "print copy amount' is to go the Program's Print menu and instead of using the "Copies" box, use "Properties/Advanced/Paper Output/Copy Count" and change this to the number of copies wanted then run the print job but don't forget to return to this menus and change it back to "1" as it will continue to use the new amount set. This appears to be a problem with the Printer Driver.
