Printer conflict with one PC on a network printer

Printer conflict with one PC on a network printer

Printer conflict with one PC on a network printer

My PC is one of five on a Win NT4.0 Small Business Server.  We have a printer router to which three printers are connected.  When I try to send a large print job to the HP 2000 color printer, it prints very slowly and slows down all activity on the network.  No one can print anything, and email delivery through MS Exchange was stopped.  When sending the same job through another PC to the HP 2000 printer, it prints quickly with no problems on the network.

My PC is a PIII with 128 mg RAM.  There is over 3/4 of the disk free space.  I also notice that when I select this printer in the print screen, it takes a while to connect.

Does anyone have a clue as to what could be causing this problem?
