Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook

1 Answer

Very, very slow printing

When I go to print any document it take at least 2-3 minutes to print a single b&w one-page document.

What do you think the problem is?

    The printer is a new J4580 all-in-one printer. The only printer defined. No other jobs in the que. I think the problem is Vista Home Premium. I'm thinking about re-installing the OS and upgrade back to XP Professional.

I don't know the make/model of the printer, but I can mention a few possibilities.

1) If your printer is set for PostScript (PS) language, versus PCL , it normally takes longer to print.

2) If this printer is fairly new, check for old Printers installed that are no longer connected to the computer/network. See if there are still print jobs in the queues. A missing printer with jobs still in queue will keep polling the system and eating up processing time.

3) If this printer is a laser printer, it may have to wake-up and warm-up before printing.

    A smart move. Vista has so many problems. XP is pretty stable. Microsoft is scrapping it all and starting from scratch for Windows 7, which we won't see for another 1-1/2 years.

Thin black line on Xerox 4011 laser printer

Does the same thing occur with a different document.. Because it is not repetative, it leads me to believe the line is being drawn at the direction of the software. Try printing a test page, and see if the line appears. If not the issue is from within the word processsing software. It almost sounds like a legal template for a pleading..
