Question about HP LaserJet 4300 Printer
This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

I've not worked with one of these cables before, but here's what I would do: Right-click on the printer icon and go to properties. You'll be looking for the tab that says "ports." Open that tab and see what port the computer thinks it's using for the printer. Chances it says it's using a parallel port, but it is in fact, using a USB port. I can't tell you which to choose without looking at what you see, but I think you might find one that makes reference to a USB port with a parallel connection of some type. Try clicking on that and see if your situation improves.

Your print resolution may be set too high. Are you printing out simple MS Word files or websites or photos? Something with graphics will always take longer to print. To adjust your print resolution settings: Click Start, then place your cursor over "Settings" and then click on "Printers and Faxes". Find your printer in the list and RIGHT click on it. Select "properties". Next, click on the "printing preferences" button, then on the tab that says "Paper/quality". Click "Advanced". In the window that opens, click on "Print Quality" and select the lowest option (usually 300 dpi). If you need better quality, you can come back in and increase the resolution in the same way.

Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?
Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.
If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your response, Even after I asked if every cord was plugged, I did'nt check myself. The usb cable was unplugged ! Agh !!!!!"
Try downloading the latest driver from HP:
Often times the drivers on the CD are already out of date.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!
