Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your printer driver? You can do this by clicking on start and selecting printers and faxes from the start menu. Right click on your printer icon and select 'delete'.
Once your printer icon is deleted, click on 'add printer' at the top left of the screen. Let Windows auto detect your printer after which it should install your printer software automatically. Restart your pc and try using your printer again.

HP LaserJet 2430n occasionally prints goblety-gook


ISSUE: When printing from the computer, you receive a line of garbage or all of the printed output comes out on one line. SOLUTION: See the following:
  1. Perform a self-test to be sure that the HP LaserJet printer is functioning properly. If the self-test is not correct, remove all cables and accessories (if any) and print a self-test again. If the self-test is still not correct, service the printer. If the self-test is correct, go to the next step.
  2. Reseat or replace the cable. Check the cable for bends or pressure applied by objects resting on the cable. A faulty cable or cables that do not meet the IEEE-1284 Standard can cause print defects by distorting signals.

BAD, BLURY, SMEARED, PRINTING


This is from the lexmark website
"Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected."
