HPdeskjet990cxi prints half pages

I recently started getting this problem where pdfs and word documents would print out half a page skip a page then print the top paragraph of the next page, skip a page, print a paragraph of the 3rd page and so on until a 3 page document takes 12 pages and none of it is useful. I had just done a wipe and reinstall of win2k pro and everything was printing fine until today. Adobe 5, which i own, wasnt making pdfs properly, so I unistalled it and installed adobe acrobat 6.0 and then there were no problems with creating pdfs. That is when i tried printing some pdfs and word documents and gettting this error.

I know its not a problem with the printer itself or the documents as my laptop can print the files on this printer with no probs. Im thinking its the port or windows itself that is screwing things up. I really dont know. Can someone lend me some insight on what is causing this stuff and how to fix it?
