Are you using a genuine HP driver or the supplied Microsoft driver (if there is one)? Try to download the latest printer driver for Vista x64 from the HP web site.

the driver i'm using is the one from the hp website however hp has 4 drivers on its website, one is plug & play, the other 3 are universal drivers.
The middle universal driver is the one i'm using.  I think it's called PCL5.
I'm not sure if that's the right one though.  It's not connected through USB, it's plugged into a router through an ethernet cable.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

PCL driver should be OK but please try the Postscript driver too. Do normal documents print OK (Word, Excel etc)? Do you need to upgrade to a new version of Adobe Acrobat Reader or reinstall Acrobat Reader?
