Takes 5 minutes to print
Posted on 2004-04-16
Working on a win2K stand alone machine. Whenever I send a job to the printer, it goes to the queue, but takes about 5 minutes before it starts to print. Using an HP Officejet5110 via USB. Uninstalled software/drivers and reinstalled from fresh d/l from HP website. Tried changing spooler settings. Hooked up printer on an XP machine and it prints fine, so it's not the printer.
Also noticed CPU usage goes to 100%, mainly explorer.exe, when the job goes to the printer. I've scanned using Trend MIcro Sysclean and Spybot.
