    Ooops I didn't mean to make it sound like the Tech was there the whole 3 days :-).. Two days I was farting with it..It took so long to get the internet connection going..Not realizing the router died.. He came the third day to work on the printer..I'm telling you everything was out of wack..It was almost like someone else from the outside was digging around in the computer.The Tech also couldn't explain why what happened.. I remember the day before doing updates, we also had a storm that night. Anywho..Any idea's..Just recently, I tried the HP driver check.It stated wrong driver..OK I uninstalled what we had and reinstalled another available one from HP..It didn't work at all so went back to what we had.

    Any Idea's?

    (drivers we tried)Hp Laserjet 5si and HP LaserJet 5si mx...Should I try a couple of the others?...OK I blabbed my head..

Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.

It sounds as though the storm (power outage) had reset the printer to default settings. Unfortunately, without the LCD working, it will be impossible to give it a new static IP address.

As far as the printer being slow, it sounds as though the print job is being held in que somewhere - or the internal memory of the printer took a "hit" in the storm, and can only "handle" spooling one page at a time.

Laserjet 3015 is printing multiple pages on one sheet

exists special function in driver of the printer which quantifies pages of the document on one signet sheet. Sounds like "Multiple printing" you can manipulate or disactivate this function.
