Problem with 'HP LaserJet 4M plus' printer

Using this printer under Win95 causes a problem in my case. I tried the "HP LaserJet 4M Plus" driver as the first choice. Printing using this driver can't be done even with a simple text file.
Then I tried using a "HP LaserJet 4/4M Plus PS" driver - and this works better with plain text files, but messes up the graphics. If then I adjust the settings a bit, if I'm lucky sometimes I get a fine printout of what I want.

The HP-printer is set up on a Compaq deskpro 2000 computer with Win95 which is working as a server. The printer is connected to the parallel port of the Compaq machine. It also has 6 mb of RAM which should be enough in this case.

I wonder if it's a Win95 printer driver problem or maybe simply it's a hardware problem (I did check cables etc.)
Does WinNT have better printer driver support?

Micrsoft has provided an alternate LPT.VXD file on the Windows 95 CDROM in the directory \DRIVERS\PRINTER\LPT.  Copy the LPT.VXD file to C:\windows\system.  There is a README file that explains the problems with Compaq Parallel ports.
