You could try and un-install your printer and then install again!! What kind of printer have u got?

I don't think this is a Word problem.

Can you print a windows test page from the printer dialogue in Control panel?

Diemmess. No. but can still print from web sites.

A bit out of my depth with XP, but if you cannot print a test page from Windows, I feel there is a troubleshooting "Help" attached to that option in case of bother there.

Have just had a look at my own printer in control panel - I right clicked on the printer and clicked on properties.

If you click on the details tab, there is a huge variety of options to play with. I suggest you start by looking at the settings you see there in case anything is obviously nonsense, and then look st spool settings ---- you could do worse than use the defaults unless (unlike me) you know better!

There are also port settings on this page, I hope you find the answers.
