HP Deskjet 3820 Installation Problem

I have just purchased a Deskjet 3820 for my daughter to use at university on a Dell P111 350 running Windows95. I connected via parallel port and installed printer software etc fron supplied CD. Test page printed perfectly but then would not print a Word doc. Reinstalled twice but will only print one document then gives out of paper error message when paper is present.Resetting printer cures it and allows doc to print but same thing happens next time. Tried chaging spooler setting to RAW but no better. Any ideas ?

Try it on a USB cable - they're often happier.

Or try changing the parallel port type to ECP in the BIOS

Dont think the version of WIN95 supports UBS but will give your other suggestion a try tomorrow
