please someone help! Before I put my eye out with a rusty grapefruit spoon!!!!

running an older computer originally packard bell...we reformatted everything, put on win2000.

printer problems....lots of them. hp printer. it will print a test page, but will not print any doc. been through all the hp t/s including removing drivers/ports/etc.
someone has suggested altering the bios...I went in and peeked, but didn't see much of much controlling the printer or printer port. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
