HP Deskjet 870Cse spits out paper on bootup
Posted on 1998-10-16
My Deskjet 870Cse,when booting up my system, before Windows 98 GUI even loads, will occasionally spew out several sheets of paper with a line of garbage on the ver top of the page.
I have the most current HP drivers installed (even though they're not being loaded during that part of the boot).
It happens frequently but not everytime I restart and it will keep shooting out paper until the system finally boots completely up or I grab the paper out of the tray, whichever happens first. Ideas appreciated, HP knowledge base is of no help!
