Hp 2055dn slow to print

I have a HP 2055dn network printer, the software i run need to use the PCI 5 driver. when i use this setup the printer is very slow to start printing it takes almost 2 mins to start printing a test page. if i install the PCI 6 driver it prints fine.

i have this printer set up at another office with the PCI 5 driver and it works fine the only difference is that the one that dose not work correctly has xp home and the one that does has xp pro on it i dont know if that will make a difference or not. Has anyone had this trouble with this printer or know how to fix it?  thanks in advance

The below link is a page from HP giving reasons printing may be slow, and solutions for the various issues.

In your case, you should make sure it is not set to Best and Glossy or Transparency type paper, excessive temporary files (use CCleaner www.ccleaner.com to clear out unneeded temp files - much better than the manual search HP suggests), and that a large number of fonts are not installed.

If your problem seems to be specific to .pdf files, you should change the settings within Adobe Reader to print as an image.
