I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  2. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  3. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  4. Click OK.

Adjust margins

If the margins are off, it is usually the paper in not sitting correctly in the paper tray, check the edge guides on the paper tray, make sure they are firmly against the paper.

Hope this is of some help.

Most likely this is an issue with your print margins. Try changing the margins by making them smaller.
