Re: in win xp sp3: HP1120C prints test sheet in living...
The printer driver (file) is probably damaged (from frequent use); after your hard disk is stabilized (by running "chkdsk /r /x" from a command line [cmd in Run] and setting it to run on next boot), I suggest downloading the driver from HP Support and reinstalling it; then log off or reboot and select it as default if you want. Logging off, like rebooting, resets all hardware drivers.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software. The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.
Does it seem to print the Windows test page faster than the self test print? If so it is probably printing the self test in a higher resolution than the Win test print (Win test prints are usually printed in low res)
Try printing a simple graphic or document from a piece of software. First in DRAFT mode and then in the HIGHEST Quality setting. See if you notice the "jerky" sensation in the DRAFT mode.
I have the same Printer and it works great in Windows XP Pro, so maybe you need to check their website for updated printer drivers...? My Printer is the HP Deskjet 1120C Professional Series Printer, that's the full name so I guess its the same printer...can print up to 13x19 inches....I've used the heck out of mine and it just now developed a problem where it won't pull the paper in from the front, but believe it or not I can load one sheet at a time from the back....
Try printing a windows test page from the driver software, START-SETTINGS_PRINTERS-DELL964- properties,,etc. If the test page prints with color then I believe that your driver is set to print in greyscale. If you can't find that option in the driver you might try to re-install the driver from your original cd.
