Buck/Paul, 16mbs is WAY too low - I don't have personal experience with this model HP but we have a 5si and it had 4mb (believe it or not - this was before I got here) and we got the MPI Blue Kit and their recommendation was to ADD 16mb as a MINIMUM to run AFP. From experience - laser printers (JUST like PC's) LOVE all the memory they can get and behave MUCH better ! Chuck Buck Calabro wrote: > Paul, > Did you get anywhere with this?
