HP prints slow in Word. (WinMe)

By MJA ·
New Dell 4200 with WinMe (I know..Me) When printing from Word (Office 2000) the print jobs are slowwwww. It prints slow most of the time but occasionally it will print OK. I have tried new drivers (HP) and still NG. Any suggestions? Thanks

HP prints slow in Word. (WinMe)

Need more information. What printer type? HP what - officejet, inkjet, laser, etc.

Also is it the same document? Are there a lot of font changes, graphics, etc. if so then it will be slow, also you can try the RAW / EMFSetting in controlpanel/printers/right click your printer and choose properties/ spool settings....

Also tell it to print after first page not last page is spolled. and see what happens....

Also is if slow after printing fine for a few printouts in a row? If so pointingmore and more to spolling problems.

hope that helps.

Sorry HP DeskJet .. No graphics just plain type. Also it is set to print after first page not last page. It prints slow from first page on to the last. I have downloaded a utility from HP that sets paper type to normal. Apparently there is a sensor in the printer to tell it if its photo paper or plain paper. I use the utility and it prints fine. After I leave my client and she prints later it returns to printing slow.

Are the docs your printing large docs? Could be that the printer simply doesn't have enough memory to do the job. I would wipe out the printer and reinstall it w/ the most current drivers you can get, and try again. Could also be an ME/Office issue,but I would try this 1st, as printer drivers are generally flaky to begin w/ and sometimes just go bye bye for no apparent reason.

The docs are 10 - 15 pages and the printer prints fine at times. I ahve already wiped the drivers out and reinstalled. I just received another call from another client that has WinMe and with a Lexmark printer, USB and is having the same problem. Ithas to be a problem with WinMe I have searched high and low. There must be other people having the same problem. Thanks.
