HP LaserJet 2025dn very slow printing

I recently purchased a HP LaserJet 2025dn and first installed it on a 2003 server for our network to use easily. That works out ok, but was a little slow for most (think that was just network related) but the main computer that would be using the printer would spool/print very very slow over the network.

So I moved the printer directly to that computer, reinstalled software/drivers and attempted to print with it connected via USB. Word documents take for ever to print even with just plain text. Excel documents print a lot quicker but still 45 seconds or so.  I cannot print a PDF. If a word document has any type of image in it, I'm waiting a good 3-5 minutes.

While waiting, the printer que window just says spooling - printing.

A simple test page from printer properties prints right away, a one line text document out of notepad prints right away. The printer came with firmware 20110212 which is the most current. Printer has 128MB Memory.

The software / drivers were installed off of the cd that came with the printer.

According to reports, you are not the only one. Best advice is to switch to the Postscipt driver instead of the PCL. Everyone is recommending the PS v4.7 driver.

I have had a this issue with HP printers before and it was due to the incorrect USB driver being used
