I have downloaded drivers from the HP site, but same results.
Printing from a DOS prompt (ie. copy test.txt lpt1) gives perfect results, so I am assuming some sort of XP driver compatability issue. The same printer worked perfectly before on a Win 98 PC.
Find attatched a scan of the Windows XP Printer Test page as printed on the LaserJet 5
Any help would be grateful received

Open the Printers & Faxes Folder, select File->Server Properties, select the Drivers tab and Remove any instance of an LJ5 delated driver. Now try reinstalling again.

They're not all next to each other in the list

if all is ok with the HP III driver, try some 600 dpi driver - let's say HP 4 - either the MS driver or the HP.
If none of this works, try changing your BIOS setting for the port - put it SPP and try again.
