Justs reloaded a Dell 370 workstation with XP SP2 and Small Bus. No matter
what program you are using, when selecting the print function from File the
Print Box is slow to show. Any ideas on why ?

Thanks,

Hi,

Try to get the latest drivers for your printer. Apart from that, nothing else strikes my mind.

Are you on a network, or standalone?

V Green:

On a network. Each workstation has 1 printer of its own and also has
several printers in the network available. I will check out the drivers
again, but none of my other workstations experience this problem.

Thanks,

Unplug from the network. See if the problem
goes away.
