Paper pickup problem are usually related to the rollers. On the HP 5L, you probably are talking about the pickup rollers and the paper separation pads. They seem to wear down extremely quickly in this model. Replace them and your printer will no longer pickup multiple sheets.

Also sometimes, the paper sensor in back, gets swampped with paper dust. Clean it out, and maybe pull it up a little.

Here's an even easier thing to try first. Most of the time cleaning the pickup roller will suffice. Simply take out the toner cartridge, put some isopropyl or rubbing alcohol on a lint-free rag, and clean the roller off. You'll amaze your friends. Hope this helps!
