Did you download the latest driver from the HP website?
Is this a general behaviour (all applications) or only specific one?
USB / Parallel port?

Try to test your printer port in dos.
Boot with a startup disk in Win95 or Win98.
Then try to print a text file e.g. autoexec.bat from startup disk:
  type autoexec.bat >lpt1
and see if this works.

Is this printer working fine in other Operation Systems ?
Could it be possible that your printer-port is damaged somehow.
Check also your printer cable.
