Lines around fields on Invoices

I use the invoice form and have customized it into several different forms that I use such as Packing Slip, Delivery Receipt, Back Order, Etc.

I recently upgraded to Windows XP Home Service Pack 2 and now there are breaks in the lines around the different fields on the right hand side of the form.

Anyone have any suggestions? I went into the template and decreased the size of the fields but it still prints the same way.
When I preview the form it looks fine.

Help!?

In the Layout Designer, select the field whose borders you want to change from a broken line to a solid line and then select Properties + Border.

I checked the properties of the boxes that are not printing correctly and they show a solid line for all sides. It appears that the breaks in the lines are an issue between Quick Books and the HP5P Printer that is connected to the computer with Windows XP.
The problem has only started since changing to the Windows XP Home Service Pack 2 OS. Any other ideas?

Lines on Invoices

I've tried changing setting on the templates and decreasing the width of the form in case the printer margins were the issue.
It appears that the horizontal lines around the title box Ship To on the right hand side end 1/4 " from the Vertical line of the box.
This is the same for the Title Box and Data Field for the Field above the Amount Column although these lack approximately 1/2" of the Vertical Line as does the top line of the Total Box.
The Invoice No. Box and Field for the number lack 1/4" on the horizontal line of reaching the Vertical line.
Thank you for any input!

I have a HP Desk Jet 960C attached to the same computer and the forms print out fine on this printer as opposed to the HP5P.
Thank you for any input!

Thanks for your input. I have reinstalled the printer using the driver from within Windows XP and the forms do print correctly now. Wouldn't you think that the HP Driver would be better than the universal driver in XP? Oh well...it works and that's what matters.
