When Virtual Memory is turned on (Perf 6400) and when trying to print to an HP 680C printer, the machine either freezes or the printer prints only half way. With virtual memory off, it prints fine. Turned background printing off with same results. Using the latest drivers (9.1.4).

This is a known - and documented - bug with the HP drivers.  They do not work well with Virtual memory (the driver tries to use all available memory - virtual or not - to print and causes the freezes/extremely slow printing).  HP reccomends to turn off virtual memory when printing.  As for the background printing, insure that you are running the most current drivers (6.0.3).  They are available from HP's web site.
