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.

Printing Sections in Microsoft Word


Printing Word Documents with Multiple Sections You have a document with multiple sections. When you try to print specific pages, you get either one single page, or the whole document. What you don’t get is the two separate pages you need.

First, take note of which section has the first page you want to print, and in which section the second page resides.

You need to print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section two.
In this particular case, the command is the usual: File | Print:


The difference in this case is how you specify the pages to be printed. In the Pages dialog box, type P2S1, P1S2 and then click OK. The comma “,” separating the two pages indicates two separate pages. The result will print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section 2.

If, however, you wanted to print from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2, the command would be P2S1-P1S2. The dash "-" indicates a range of pages, which results in printing from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2.

How to duplex print with 895cxi


This model printer does not have a duplex unit and cannot print double sided documents automatically.
DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

LaserJet 5Si printing slow use to be able to hit the print key then the printer would fire away. seems like the printer pauses between pages then prints maybe 3 to 4 pages per minute


Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

I suspect that you are looking at a flow control issue and not a printer failure.

You can check the printer driver and make sure your printer options for background printing.

Also, make sure that your document is not too busy. I've had customers complain about slow printing documents and when I examined the documents, I discovered that there were multiple images overlay ed. The data still had to be sent, but only the top image printed.
