First, you need to try update the latest microsoft office patch file from microsoft or you can open the MS Word, go to "HELP" menu select the update MS Word or related. Try the latest patch file first. You also can try windows update and select custom update, see their list have this problem solution or not. Second, you need to go to HP website download latest driver for LJ1020 and suitable use on Vista. Lastly, if still not solve the problem, you need this problem/issue to microsoft, ask their solutions. Kent

Please upgrade the firmware of the printer:
1. Download the firmware file from the following website and extract it.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=412144&prodNameId=412158&swEnvOID=54&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-25065-13
Expecting that the printer is connected over the network:
=============================================
Remote firmware update by using FTP through a browser
Complete the following steps to update the product firmware by using file transfer protocol (FTP) through a browser.
NOTE: The following instructions can be used on Windows or Macintosh operating systems.
Take note of the TCP/IP address on the EIO-Jetdirect page. The EIO-Jetdirect page is the second page of the configuration page printout.
Open a browser window.
In the address line of the browser, type ftp://<IPADDRESS>, where <IPADDRESS> is the TCP/IP address of the product. For example, if the TCP/IP address is 192.168.0.90, type FTP://192.168.0.90.
Locate the downloaded .RFU file for the product.
Drag and drop the .RFU file onto the PORT1 icon in the browser window.
NOTE: The product automatically restarts the firmware to activate the update. At the end of the update process, the Ready message appears on the control panel.

The following describes how to upgrade firmware in the LaserJet 2400, P3005 and 5200 Series Printers using a USB connection only.
To send the firmware upgrade via USB, you will need to know the name of the computer the printer is connected to, and the printer will need to be shared.
=============================================
=============================================
To find out the name of your computer:
Click the Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then choose System Information.
You will find your computer’s name in the right window-pane next to System Name.
Write down this name as it will be needed later.
To share the connected printer:
Click the Start button, Settings , then choose Printers ("Printers and Faxes" on WinXP).
Right click on the printer you need to send the upgrade to and then choose Sharing.
On WinXP, if you encounter the following link "If you understand the security risks but want to share printers without running the wizard, click here.", click the link.
Select "Just enable printer sharing" and click OK .
Select Shared As: ("Share this printer" on WinXP) and type a name for the share.
Click Apply and write down the share name as it will be needed later.
To send the firmware upgrade using a USB connection:
Go to a DOS Command Prompt and locate the directory where you saved the firmware file. (To open a Command Prompt inWindows 2000 or XP, go to the Start button, then choose run, then type CMD and hit Enter, in Windows 98 or ME, go to the Start button, Programs, Accessories, then choose MSDOS Prompt). This will bring up a small black screen as displayed below:
If connected to a USB port, Type: copy /b filename \computer nameshare name (for example, copy /b ozfw.rfu \computer1printer).
Press ENTER .
The control panel displays receiving upgrade followed by performing upgrade . The download may take several minutes.
The control panel displays processing job .
The download is complete when the printer reboots and "READY" message is displayed on the control panel.

The problem isn't your printer. The problem is with your Microsoft Works software. I know of six solutions that may work.

1) Download the latest service pack for .NET Framework 1.1. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A8F5654F-088E-40B2-BBDB-A83353618B38&displaylang=en

2) Go to this website and download the update. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=65f5b806-e6a1-4f92-a656-e56eeda67e3d&displaylang=en

3) Uninstall printer completely (again). Unplug the printer from the computer. Reboot computer. Download the lastest driver from HP website. When installing the driver software, choose (type)a different directory,( ie. C:\MYHP\HP4180\ ). Plug Printer back to computer.

4) Go to this website. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841220

5) Click START, click RUN, type SPOOL. Double click printer folder, clear (delete) any files in this folder.

6) Download the latest version of Microsoft Works 9.0.

Let me know if this works.

Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200


see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    Insufficient memory


    This error occurs when the onboard memory is not sufficient to print the file you are sending. This can be caused by either a file that is too complex for the memory that shipped with the printer. Unlike other models of HP, the 3030 does not share memory with the fax so it is unlikely that faxes stuck in memory are causing the problem. If the printer prints other documents ok, then it is just the reality that newer programs create files that require printer memory that far exceeds what this older model printer has.

    HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


    INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
    If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

    On HP 5MP laserjet Printer, on printing a document, the message says: the printer requires more memory than is avaailable in this printer.what to do then?


    You don't say what kind of a document you are trying to print. Did you try to print something else. Did it print?
    Normally if you try and print a complex spread sheet you may get that warning. You have the option of adding more memory or making your print job less complex. Or printing to another printer.

    Open Printer options and reduce the print quality. It is probably 1200dpi. Make it 600 and try the print again.
    You may also add more printer memory to print complex documents on highest resolution possible.

    I have an HP Color LaserJet 3800 printer. I am trying to print a document and it keeps printing: PCL XL error Subsystem: GEDI Error: MemA L LocError Operator: ReadImage Position: 743


    That means that the printer does not have sufficient memory tp [rint the document, if it is a text document (eg word) try to print pages in groups, if it is a different document try the following:
    " I receive a 'PCL XL error' on my HP 4100mfp when making a 2 page copy as one page in duplex? Why?
    The problem is related to a printer memory problem.

    If following parameters are set in the HP 4100mfp you will receive and 'Insufficient Memory" error.
    1) In 'COPYING' the 'IMAGE QUALITY' is set to 'BEST'
    2) In 'ORIGINALS' the 'CONTENT' is set to 'PHOTO'

    Following error message is printed:

    PCL XL error

    Subsystem: GEDI
    Error: InsufficientMemory
    Operator: EndSession
    Position: 32

    The solution is to set 'CONTENT' to 'MIXED' or 'TEXT' or set 'IMAGE QUALITY' to 'NORMAL' or you can add additional memory to the HP 4100mfp. "

    Insufficient memory


    If it's host based, that means when you print:

    1) from word, your word document is converted to a series of characters, and sent to the printer.
    2) from excel, same thing.
    3) from works, it's converted to a bitmap, instead of characters, which can take up significantly more space on your drive.

    My guess is that if you imported a photo into word, then tried to print it, you might face similar issues.

    If so, it's time to free up some space on your hard drive, or purchase a second one, or add some physical memory to your PC.
