If I swith print drivers, too many documents will be affected by change of format, so that's not an option. In any case we have not updated any printer drivers in months.

the funny thing is that the printers are installed on the file servers and the error occur on the mail server (2008 x64), the printers were pushed via GPO so I moved the service user accounts to different container and removed the network printers from the server and I will monitor the logs
would be great if someone from HP can respond to this issue and apply some solution.

This has fixed it for me in all instances. I have had to preform it on some client laptops, and also the print server.
The current suggested workaround for customers that wish to continue to use the latest discrete PCL 6, PCL 5, or Postscript drivers from hp.com will need to perform the following:
- Open Notepad and save the file as hpzbdi32.msi or hpzbdi64.msi. This zero-byte file will not contain any data.
- Navigate to the C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86 or x6
4\3 directory and locate the hpzbdi32.msi or hpzbdi64.msi file. Rename the file to hpzbdi32.old or hpzbdi64.old.
- Copy and paste the newly created zero-byte file named hpzbdi32.msi or hpzbdi64.msi into theC:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86 or x64
- Verify functionality.
Depending on configuration, it may be necessary to stop the spooler, perform the steps in the workaround, and restart the spooler once the steps have been completed.
Please note that if the customer performs this workaround and a reinstallation of the driver is performed, the zero-byte msi file will be overwritten by the original msi file in the original driver package. All steps in the workaround would need to be performed again.

Have you tried using the HP UPD instead of a discrete printer driver? The HP UPD uses a newer version of this component, and the problem you are seeing was resolved in UPD several versions ago.
Depending on how many print queues you have, you may want to also look at AutoUpgradeUPD.exe in the PARK (Print Administrator's Resource Kit) available at http://www.hp.com/go/upd. This utility can be used to automate the process of upgrading from older product-specific drivers to a new version of HP UPD.
Once the queues have been updated/recreated, I would recommend removing the old driver(s) from the server.
