I have an HP Deskjet 5100. For some reason ONLY when I print off my laptop the pages come out in reverse order (page 3 prints first then 2, then 1). It's really messing me up when I want to print on both sides because it will print in a backwards order and the ordering of my pages is messed up. I have no problems like this when I print off my desktop.

If it matters my desktop is running WIN ME and my laptop is running XP but I don't think that should matter.

I've looked at printer settings and there doesn't seem to be anything for ordering of printing.

My System

Hi, have you checked in printer preferences/features for the box down the bottom which says 'start printing from last page'. This box should not be ticked on your laptop preferences.
