Images printing dull please help

 Hi there,


         I Have a HP Photosmart C5550 All in one printer. I use Vista. I Just re installed the drivers off the website. 

Heres the problem: I ran a cartridge ink/ printer test and the color looks great everything is fine. I even ran the clean printer cartridge mode. BUT when I try to print something in color it comes out extremely dull and lack of detail. It almost seems its printing from a limited color scale (But the test prints are fine, Only when i try to print something else.) when I printed things not in color it seems fine for detail. Ive spent over an hour ajusting options and trying diffrent settings and everytime the picture comes out the same. I would really appreciate and help I could get. Thanks in advance.
