Open the print queue in the system tray and look at the status of the stalled doc. try restarting the doc. If the printing is a large file it could be a memory problem. check device mgr (Ctrl Alt Del) to see memory usage

SOURCE: printer will default to "save as" screen when que to print

In administrator login the default printer is "Microsoft XPS Document Writer", make sure that the default printer is the HP Printer.
OR
You have to change in the Print dialog box, select the HP Printer instead of "Microsoft XPS Document Writer"

SOURCE: Samsung ML-4500 with IEEE 1284 to usb cable not working

Windows XP/VISTA (do not install the CD)
1) Plug the cable into the USB port on your computer.
2) A prompt that says "Found New Hardware" will appear. Windows will then install the USB printing support driver automatically. You do not need to install the driver from the CD.
3) Plug the cable into the printer.
4) If your printer is already installed, click on Start, then Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer you are connecting to and click on Properties. Click on the Ports tab and check the ‘Virtual printer port for USB’ port. Click OK.
5) You should now be able to print.

With XP, the biggest clue is to FIRST plug the cable into the usb slot, THEN the other end of the cable into the printer.

I need to change to size of the print


When you are ready to print, go to the option above print, called page setup. Change the scale to about 150%, just experiment with that and it should help. There are other options in print preview that will let you change the size, but I would go with page setup. Hope that helps
