2 minute latency when printing

Here's my setup: Windows Pro 2000 box w/129MB Ram & HP Deskjet 940c. When I print it takes pretty close to 2 minutes before the print job will start and then it will print 4-5 pages, then it takes another 2 minutes for another 4-5 pages to print. Is there a memory issue here? If so, is it with the printer itself or the box?...Tom

1)increase the ram to at least 256M
check the spooler settings in the print driver.
Best bet usually is to set them to "start printing after the last page is spooled".
Other than that, what application are u using#? Crystal 9 takes  6 minutes to generate a usuable cvs  from tesseract

Thanks for your suggestions.  I'll accept your answer because I don't think God would have got this one. It amounted to the services service sucking up most of (up to 99%) the CPU capacity.

After scouring other forums and such for solutions (and trying them of course) I deduced the culprit to be the latest updates from MS. So I called them (free, of course) and they didn't have any answers.

Because this problem was happening on two production machines of a client of mine, I thought it most efficient to simply reinstall the O/Ss. Yes, that worked!

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.
