    I recently installed WinXP pro on my brothers PC, I reinstalled all his peripherals and associated drivers etc although XP had most of them anyway.
    I was in a bit of a rush and after testing the printer by printing a test page I had to leave, he is telling me that now when he prints a 3 page document it prints in reverse order ie; the last page is printed first? I have been trying to get him to download the latest driver from the HP site but he doesnt have a clue. He assures me has looked through the properties etc and cant see anything about print order etc, anyone had similar or ideas? It's an HP deskjet 990 cxi
    He lives 45miles away so I am trying to send him an email with instructions.

    err, is it really that big a deal? it just measn when the print outs done the first page is on the top not the bottom
    so no re organising is done

    its likely just a setting in the printer options, new drivers are unlikely to fix that as they dont often overwrite settings

    it will be something like print pages in reverse order
    3 2 1

    not 1 2 3

    dont have a printer, so cant tell you the exact place

    I'm fairly sure this is to do with XP, rather than the printer's own drivers. My Canon used to print page 1, 2, 3..etc. but when I installed it on XP (found it itself, by coincidence), it now prints in reverse, as you describe.

    I've never bothered to see if it can be changed, as like Phoenix says, it aint a biggie, and if you think about it, is actually more logical anyway.

    2€ for the pot :D
