Spontaneous underlining on HP LJ5
Posted on 2001-08-22
Once in a while when printing a document on an HP LJ 5N (MS Word 97 SR-2, Win98 SE, PIII 550MHz, 128MB RAM), some of the text comes out underined whereas in the document on screen, as it was typed, it is not underlined, but either in italics or bold. Occassionally, the entire document prints underlined. The documents are usually typed in 11- or 12-point Arial font.
I have replaced the printer driver with both Microsoft's and HP's latest drivers for that printer, but the problem intermittently persists. I have deleted all fonts and reinstalled fresh ones. No help there. Network drivers are up to date, too.
