    I'm running Win XP Pro on an AMD 2000 Thunderbird with 512mb memory. I have an HP Deskjet 500 running on my parallel port. The printer is working fine, but whenever I send something to the printer, my system practically comes to a standstill until the printing is complete. Seems like this should not be happening? I went to the HP web site to get a newer printer driver and it shows one available, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the +_)(*&^%$#@! to download!

    Okay. After further research, it appears I have the most current driver for this printer...came with Win XP Pro CD. I still have the problem where my printer seems to takeover my PC whenever I print anything.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help!
