What is your computer info ? ( i.e. CPU, RAM cash, etc' )
OS ?
Printer memory - size ?
Printer driver ?
Printer emulation ( if any ? )

Are you using print manager or other queuing software, if so turn it off.

Start with the basics. Go to DOS and do:

DIR > PRN

See if it prints at speed under this condition.

If that's clean then try printing from NOTEPAD or other simple windows app. Make sure that your printer properties are not set to "High Quality" mode as this will slow down printing considerably.

If it works well after both those tests then concentrate on AutoCAD.

Is this LT95 or 97, if it is 97 then try using one of the AutoCAD ADI drivers and not default system printer, I will try to find out which supports your printer, is it HPGL compatible as this is the best driver.  Let me know the version
