    I can print *once*
    with my HP640c and win98 pc, but if I try to print again, nothing
    happens. No error message appears, just nothing.
    When I reboot, it will print, but again, only once.
    Turning the printer off and on doesn't do anything.
    Using same printer with XP machine no problems.
    Any thoughts? - thanks.

    A 10 year old operating system would be my first guess.

    Windows 98 was released in 1996?! Okay, leaving date issues aside, IIRC the
    640c was about at roughly the same time, or just after 98 was released [1]
    so, logic would dictate, it would have issues running under XP, rather than
    98. That being said, there is a 98 driver available on HP's site.

    [1] Actually, having looked at HP's site, it's probably slightly older than I
    thought. In any case, HP do not have a great record with having older models
    running with newer operating systems, so the fact that the OP has no problems
    using it under XP is something of a minor miracle. My boyfriend had the same
    problem with an 890C, IIRC, HP offered no support under any flavour of OS X,
    so he gave up and bought a laser (ironically, a LaserJet).
