Strange Printing Behavior


G

Guest

When printing a document through either of two print servers, one of our desktop machines here running windows 2000 will spool for an abnormally long time, and the size of the document is also abnormally large. The printer is an HP LaserJet 4100. A simple test page may spool and when watching the print queue it says it was like 700k but then printing from another desktop in the same room through the same server it prints much faster and with a much smaller file size. If I create a new printer and directly print through a standard TCP/IP port it prints normally. This problem is only showing up on one computer so far. All other computers are printing normally.

First, I would try uninstalling the printer drivers, and reinstalling them
Another thing to try would be to run SFC /SCANNOW on the workstation to
resolve possible corruption in localspl.dll (or just upgrade the service
pack if possible)
