network printer works funny for one machine

W2K server is able to send test_pages in color to a HP 8550 network printer w/o problem. One W2k workstation sending both word documents or color documents from a browser will only get a page with graphics printed on the page. Sometimes horizontal lines appear instead of text.

This seems to be a driver issue but I changed between the postscript driver and the PCL 5 C drivers.

Try setting the Postscript driver to:

OPTIMIZE for PORTABLILTY and RAW

For the PCL driver, You must have a Win2000 driver, NT driver will probably give you missing characters and missing graphics.
