Unhappy HP Laserjet Printer.... help!

Hi,
I have a HP laserjet 1100 printer and am running Windows 2000 Pro(SP4) and have installed the driver and everything seems to be ok untill i print...

(e.g.) i done a test print and a window appears Titled 'Printers Folder' and in that folder it says 'There was an error found when printing the document "Test Page" to LPT2:. Dou you want to retry or cancelling the job?' Retry button doesnt work and cancel button obviously cancels.

this problem is the same all the time. anybody help?

thanks
Deeno

I first tried it on LPT1 and still came up with same error, thought it was a problem with the port so i installed a PCI Parallel card(LPT2) and the same error appears.

Everything is connected properly, latest driver installed... printer is on before someone asks that.

Any other suggestions pls?

The PC is linked to the network yes but iam just trying to install the printer to this specific pc as it will only be used by this pc, so i dont really understand how being networked affects it?
