This is caused by the failure of one of your cartridges. Remove the black cartridge and print a test page. Does the printer print at normal speed? Is so the black cartridge was the issue and should be replaced. If not then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge and print test page. If the printer now prints normal speed the color cartridge was at fault and needs to be replaced.

I spent days and lots of time trying to figure this problem out... I even hunted down my installation disk and re-installed the drivers for my printer. To think the problem was as simple as a bad cartridge is a little embarrassing that I did not consider that. Thanks for your help, I greatly appreciate it. In all honesty, you probably saved me the cost of a new printer.
