    Do you have the latest drivers for your printer? or are you using default XP ones. also is this a upgrade of XP or a clean install and what type of printer are you using?

    have you made sure that the print spool service is set to automatic? see if that helps the situation. I can't imagine what would cause such a long non response/buffer time...worse comes to wrose uninstall the drivers and see if xP has a default driver that might work
