I have a client with hp 3005 printer. She was using it on a machine with windows 2000. It was printing ok from that machine. She ordered a new dell vostro which i installed and configured. I installed the printer and got the drivers from the hp website for xp. Now the printer takes at least 2 minutes to receive the data. Sometimes up to 5 minutes. I have tried using the pcl 5,6 and PS drivers but nothing changes it. I know the usb cable is good because it was working find on the win 2000 machine. She is not in any network. One other thing, in the port section, its not showing up as using a usb port, its using a ieee port. I couldnt get it to use a usb port even though thats how it is connected.
