system info:

Clone system
windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
HP P2035N laserjet printer.

The printer is printing multiple pages even when I am only printing one page.

Is there a setting somewhere to check?

Thanks,

Do you mean multiple copies of the same page? In that case make sure the number of copies in the driver is set to 1 (check both Printing Defaults and Printing Preferences).

Or do you get extra rubbish/blank pages? Is it happening from all applications or just one? Which one?

If you print one the printer's internal pages (press and hold the Go button to print a config page) does it also print more than 1?

The p2035 also supports PCL5 as well as GDI (host based). Instead of the GDI driver, I would install PCL5. The asker did not specify which OS, but you can select from this site:
