Hey Everyone,

I have two machines running Windows XP Pro printing to the same HP laserjet 4300 printer.
One machine will print to tray 2 and the other will incorrectly print to tray one (manual)...I've reinstalled the drivers for both machine they are identical.

Any ideas?

Have you checked "Printer Properties" for the HP printer? See if under Paper/Quality and Paper Source "Automatically Select" is the choice. If not, try forcing a selection to tray 2 from here.

Does this happen for all prints, or only some? Or only from some applications?

Try printing a Windows printer test page (from printer Properties) from both PCs.
