What OS version?
We would love to help you but can't read your mind.
Any printer, have tried HP Laserjet, HP Colour Laserjet, Scansoft PDF Printer.
Do you need anything else?
No really I'm a mac guy and it seems you need help with Widowish stuff.
Ad to that, I have not used PM in 8 years
There should be some windows fellows along soon.
What service pack is XP up to?
PM's generally stable, and the usual causes of problems are, not in any order, used to be;
Networks/non-local HDD links
Vid Card Drivers.
I'd start by trashing all the preferences in the PM RSRC folder.
Make the default "Compose to printer" a postscript printer.
Open a blank standard page and draw a cirle or square on the page, and try to print that on your PS printer or make a PDF if no PS printer.
If that doesn't work, then you need to wade your way through Troubleshoot printing problems in PageMaker (6.5-7.x) at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/328/328896.html
Iechyd da! John
