Are you using the driver from the operating system or the driver from HP directly ? If using the driver for the operating system the windows 2000 driver would be older then XP and the driver with windows xp may be incompatible. Try using the driver for windows 2000 or download an updated driver from HP.

briancassin is right on, the driver that is in XP has problems with color mapping, I have dealt with this a number of times at work in the last year.

Go to the HP web site and download the most current driver.
