Many printers will not print to the edge. Have you had a look at the manual?

What model printer do you have?

Look for a program called FINEPRINT, this give s a lot more control over page layout. I believe you can sample it first

You've probably tried this, but go to "page setup" (depending on what program you are using)and reset your margins. This may help.

If you have a "print preview" either in your wordprocessor or printer setup, you can view what the page will look like before you print. Then you can play with the margins until it looks right, and/or move your pictures within the set margins.

Hope this is of some help.

Also check that the paper size is set correctly and that you have un-ticked the resize letter to A4 box. Most printers are happy with a 1cm margin.
