I cannot speak for the author or 3rd partys who may have been involved in the alteration or creation of this beta driver. It says that it’s an HP Beta driver for x64, and it seems to be working fine for me on XP x64. My system did not find any virus’s or spyware, and it is downloadable from cnet downloads which is usually a pretty reliable source for spyware free and virus free downloads. After much aggravation and a re-visit to past cussing sessions with clenched fists at the infinite money grubbing moronic attitude of the big companies (like HP and Epson) who want you to buy a new device so they don’t write the drivers you need for your existing and perfectly usable device, I came across this beta driver and gave it a chance. So far it seems to allow my PSC 1350 all in one to print flawlessly on XP x64! WHOO HOO!
HP can @#$%$#@! (this being the 5th or 6th go around with no drivers for an HP device that works fine on XP32, Vista 32 & 64, but not XP x64 (XP x64 being the most stable operating system MS has developed to date, I find it hard to understand why it’s become the re headed step child). I’ll never purchase another HP printer. (I fought this one desperately since it’s a brand new printer that was given to me as a gift.)
anyway, enough spouting off, here’s the link to the driver! ENJOY!

In regards to the solution above mine:
That is a link to the only software available from HP for the PSC1350 on XP x64 which is a diagnostic utility and NOT the needed driver. The diagnostic utility is pretty much useless without the actual printer driver, and it only works on about 50% of the machines I’ve installed it on running x64 anyway.
(Typo correction – “re headed” above should have been “Red Headed”)

Here’s the same link from ZDnet which requires you to register and login, but it gives a good description of all the printer models supported:

I previously wrote about the solution for this using the x64 beta driver for XP. (Solution 2) I’ve since upgraded to Vista, and later to Windows 7 with a brand new Core i5 machine. I ran into difficulty because this driver will not install at all on windows 7, it gives 2 error messages, first saying you cannot install using the “Run as” command, and second saying the OS was not compatible. it was then I had a wonderful revelation:
1) go to http://www.7-zip.org/ then download and install the x64 version of 7zip. once installed, right click on the printer driver .exe file and choose 7 zip>> then extract to x64Drv22.214.171.124>>
this will extract all the files in the driver file into a folder.
2) add a printer. choose local printer, USB virtual connection. when it asks for a driver choose “have disk” then point it to the extracted folder.
The driver will install and work perfectly!
NOTE: if your downloaded file is named
x64Drv126.96.36.199, you may need to rename it and add the .exe to the end so it appears as “x64Drv188.8.131.52.exe”
