Printing PDF files on my HP LaserJet 1100A has suddenly started taking a long time. Other file formats print fast like normal. This is an 8ppm printer and has not had PDF printing problems until recently. Nothing changed, as far as I know. It has always printed fast with high resolution and has 18M of printer memory. Rebooted and all that stuff. Instead of taking 10 to 30 seconds for a page, it takes 3 to 5 minutes a page (if it even finishes printing).
The pages are not graphics intensive (almost all text!). Printing at a lower resolution is not acceptable. Keep in mind that this used to work. Using Windows XP Professional SP1 (not going to try SP2 for a while).
