Just a few questions to get the ball rolling,

Have you installed the correct language version of the driver and does your printer support the russian character set.

Have you installed the correct language support in windows, if not you will not display the correct character.

the easiest thing to do is to go to page set up and make sure your margines are correctly set. If they are then see if you installed the right language version of your driver and you have the correct language suppport in windows

I think the problem lies with the alignment of the printer's wordings . Since you said that the wordings overlap each other, if i am not wrong, you should d/l the latest hp printer driver and after installing the new driver, align the wordings of the printer by choosing the most accurate lines shown on the screen . Then print the small vertical lines on a piece of paper and see if they are well-aligned. Hope it can proved helpful to you.

Go this website to d/l the latest driver of hp deskjet 950c

It also would not hurt to narrow the issue down a bit.

You mentioned the problem occurring in Word - but what about other applications?

If it happens across multiple apps - then it's printer/print driver - if it's only in Word - then Word is where your solution lies.

One item which often throws printing for a loop - are you using the correct video display drivers?

Many print drivers use the windows GDI to generate the character bitmaps - and if you driver is close, but not correct - odd things happen.

For example - if you are using the generic SVGA or Trident SVGA drivers, you are guaranteed to have problems as these correspond to no actual existent video card.

Please verfity OS language support as suggested by the previous poster, check to make sure you have the right video driver installed, and determine whether the is a general or Word issue.
