HP4650 suddenly printing very slow from Adobe Photoshop
A computer lab with Mac G5s and HP4650 Laserjet suddenly started spooling and printing jobs from Adobe Photoshop very slowly.
We have been using this printer without incident for a few years now. Nothing new was installed or changed on the computers to cause this.
Is there a way to reset the memory?

I assume you have no problems using your printer until today.
If that is true, then you may want to cancel all jobs in the
print queue first. The easiest way is to do the followings:
Open Notepad and type the following lines: net stop spooler del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl net start spooler
Save it in your root directory as: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd Create a shortcut for it and move it to your Desktop
Now everytime you have print job(s) that got stuck in the print queue, go to your desktop and Double Click on the DeletePrintJobs.cmd
It will clear all pending print jobs in the print queue and allow you to print new jobs again.
unplug the printer from the computer.
go to start>>control panel>>administrative tools>>services
go down the list and, right click on the printer spool to stop the service.
reconnect the printer to the computer and restart the printer spool in the services panel.
if you still having problem,please restart the printer and stop/start the printer spool.
Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.
