Of all the printers, I have ever had my two HP's have been the best. My first printer was a HP and it lasted 5 years without 'major' problem being a new user at the time and running the brand spanking new Windows 95 it was pretty hot stuff for the time. After that, I went cheap and bought a Lexmark, it worked once then never again, even after swapping printers completely it NEVER worked again. By this time however I was reasonably adept with PC's and I didn't let this little hitch stop me so I went and took a look at another low end but good name printer thus ending up with what I have now the HP 656C. Only thing is it drivers me completely insane when it’s printing large numbers of files. Its a pain when doing say, income taxes and my family says 'don't touch it, or it will mess up' of course I've got other things to do besides JUST printing so there I am doing whatever then *bzzzzt* my printer starts going mad printing what looks like some sort of code, Windings or some bleh spewing out, and wasting just the first few lines of paper to annoy me until I notice and slam off the power. Its great fun and I know I'm not the only one to ever experience this fantastic event, hopefully someone knows what’s going wrong cause I sure don't. Windows XP Pro SP1 +autopatcher SP2 updates HP 656C CPU Athlon XP 2100+ RAM 768mb, could be running out? Using NT EMP 1.008 Lots of spooling space....I don't get it.
