HP Inkjet 2280 ot printing multiple PowerPoint slides


I have a problem with my HP Inkjet 2280 printer.
It is attached to a network,using a  print server(HP) and the problem is:when  someone prints a single page/slide,everything is OK.When he/she trys to print a range of slides,the printer prints the first slide ok,after that it prints the second,but only the top half of it, after that it must print the third slide ,but it prints some subsequent times the same half page of the second slide.The problem is only when I  try to print PowerPoint documents.I'm using PCL driver.
Thank you!

You could try the following:
1. In the driver, select to print directly to the printer, instead of spooling. With Win95/98 you'll find this under PrinterProperties/Details/Spool Settings (from Start/Printers). With Win2K/XP it's in PrinterProperties/Advanced
2. turn off background printing in PowerPoint (under Tools/Options/Print)
