Windows 98 HPs Garbled Test Page

I have two of several users that I have printing to a LaserJet 4Plus on Windows 98.  They are connected to the printer over an ethernet network.  The test page comes out garbled for them but not for others.  I have re-installed the HP drivers (more than one version even) and have reinstalled Windows 98, yet no improvement.  Others are printing without problems.  Apps installed are Office 97 with Outlook 98.

To lateej,
(1)each of the user's Pc, install the HP-4P driver as the local printer for LTP1 on each of their Pc.
(2)Then assign the network printer HP-4P on PC(1) as network printer on LTP2.
Remark: to avoid traffic jam, it is better for user (1) assign the LTP2, for user (2) assign as LTP3....etc in sequential order.

legend: PC(1)-the Pc or server that the HP-4P printer connected to its parallel port.
Hope this can be helped.      Pslh

I have seen this happen before.
You need to check and see how the printer is setup on the clients. Sending as Raw or EMF.. I believe you need to switch
to EMF (I forget now..but its one or the other)
