What type of printer do you have?
Check the drivers and manufactuer site of printer to see how many pages it should print per minute.
How much memory do you have in your system?
it will affect the speed of pages being printed

There are a number of ways to help a printer print faster. Of course, you will not be able to make it print faster than the rated speed the manufacturer says it can do. Keep in mind that if the manufacturer says "6 ppm" they mean that is how fast the motor can pull paper, but not necessarily how fast a printed page can be generated. Among the easier ways to increase speed of printing is to decrease complexity of the print. If your printer can do 600 dpi, then reducing that to 300 dpi will decrease the complexity to 25% of the original 600 dpi setting. Generally you can find these settings in the printer properties under Start>Settings>Printers. Also, try printing a DOS directory (outside of Windows, not through a DOS prompt in Windows) by using the command
dir>lpt1
at a DOS prompt. This will show you how fast the printer can receive simple text and print it from your computer. If this is significantly faster than print from your other documents, then the problem would seemto be with the complexity of those documents or with your printer properties (spool settings, for instance). If you can give us more information, we can try to be more helpful.
