    I have this HP printer with my windows xp system. I was printing a couple pages yesterday and it was ok, then I discovered I made a mistake and needed to print it again, and I didn't do anything different.... but it suddenly turned extremely s-l-o-w. When I clicked print it just sat there. The print dialog box said "printing". It sat so long that I canceled it, eventually when I printed again I discovered that if I wait long enough, it took the paper in, then printed like 1 line and stopped, few minutes later 1 more line, etc I canceled it.

    When I try to print a test page, it does the same thing. I went into the toolbox and tried the "clean" function, but that would not work - it said "device busy". I tried to align the printer, but that also said "device is busy". It won't let me do anything!!

    I also tried to re-install the drivers, but it says the driver is not on the disk (i have the original disk!) and a generic driver didn't work.

    I can't do anything with it. This just suddenly happened. How can I fix this?

    Cancelling the print job and then restarting the computer probably would've reset everything back to normal.

    The most current software driver for Windows XP for that printer is here. It's probably a more current version than what's on the disc.

    Well, I basically reinstalled the printer software and drivers and it seems to work now. that was really weird.
