XP PC is printing 2 pages per/sheet when I don't want it to

I have a network of computers and two printers, one xerox one HP, all
the printer settings are the same on all stations, but on one station
any print job (except the test page) prints as if it's printing 2
pages per sheet/side. So a single page worth of material gets prints
on half of an 8.5x11 sheet, when it should fill the whole sheet. This
happens when it tries to print to either printer, but no other station
prints this way.
Is there any setting that I'm missing that I can change? Is it
something on the printers themselves that I need to change?

Yep, it's already set that way, just like all the other stations that
print correctly. All the stations were made using the same image. It
is also set to portrait, but it ends up printing landscape. This is
true when printing from Firefox, IE, Outlook and an image.

Turns out the problem is only with 1 printer, an HP officejet 6100,
plugged into one PC with USB, then shared over the network to a second
PC. The second PC is the one not printing correctly, but all the
settings look fine, even the ones that don't seem relevent are exactly
the same as the other working PC. Are there any hidden settings
someplace?

Only (right-click) "Printing Preferences" and use the "Features" (tab) to
make sure that the options for "Paper Size" and "Pages per Sheet" are set
correctly.

Also, on my HP "Printing Preferences" > "Features" (tab), there's the
option to "Show Preview Before Printing" - so I would choose to select this
option (check-mark it) as, at the very least, it will give you an idea of
what the finished document will look like.

Another issue is you do not say what application it is you are printing
from when the problem behaviour occurs.

If it is "Word", then there are some default preferences that can be set
under "File" > "Page Setup".

Also, be careful what options are set in the "Print" dialogue that shows up
when printing from most applications (where you are asked for desired
page-range, etc.,) - some settings if used here become the default...
