This relates to my HP 722C and the upgrade to the most recent driver (10.3). After restarting my computer, the screens for testing communication and printing a test page came up.  The test page that was printed was a "Windows 95 Printer Test Page" with all of the specifics about the printer, its driver, port name etc.  I inadvertantly printed over that sheet and would like to reprint it for my "system file" in a real folder.  I tried uninstalling the software and reinstalling it, but that doesn't work as now I can't get by the communication test (it fails)and the print a test page comes after the communication check. (When I double click the printer icon on the desktop and run the communication test from "Printer Services", it is successful.)  Any suggestions as to how to get the detailed test page loaded so I can print it again?
