Question about HP LaserJet 5100 Printer

Hp Laserjet 5100 won't allow to print 11X17

I recently had to re-load all my software/drivers and the new hp laserjet 5100 driver won't allow me to print on 11x17 paper or allow me to save a custom size. The laserjet is accessed through another computer on our lan and the message that comes up when I try to set up the custom size is "this computer has not been configured to save settings" (or something of that nature).
Previously this printer allowed us to print 11x17 without a problem.

if its possible install the printer on another PC. if it prints god without problem than problem on your PC, follow this:
1. delete the device from "start-> control panel-> devices and printers (win7) or printers and fax (win xp) choice hp laserjet 1320 right click -> remove device. and delete driver software from control panel - > software " Than reinstall the software and turn on printer
2. try the new and the latest versions of drivers. you can search it in Internet pay attention to date of software
3. replace USB cable of printer sometimes it acts to work of printer, use original cable but no so long cable (1-1,5 metr)
4. if problem unsolved than the work to engineers,
recently we solved same problem on hp 2015, you must open covers of printer and access main board - formatter (where USB port exists), remove all wires and reinstall properly, if problem unsolved the formatter (look at the images) must be heated with special heating device. But its work of masters, don't try heat it if you are not specialist.

11x17 Landscape will only print 1 page then switches to Portrait

I found an acceptable workaround. If I leave the paper size set to "defined by driver" in the Print dialog box and chose the paper size in the Page Set Up dialog box, that seems to do it. There were numerous complaints on the web about this and it seems to be a major glitch in CS3 with the Leopard OS.
