LJ IIP+ printing graphics

My wife has sporadic problems when printing multiple print jobs that contain both text and graphics. Specifically, the print jobs are e-bay listings. They are each 2 or 3 pages of text with one or more 3 or 4 inch square pics.
Although most batches are O.K. we get some that look like exploded size pixellated pics superimposed like a double exposure. She never has a problem if she does only one print job at a time; only when she stacks several in queue.I swapped her HP IIP+ (2.5meg mem)printer out, and gave her my HP IIP (with 4.5 meg mem) and it does the same thing. She wants me to spring for a new laserjet. Is there anything easy I can try as a fix? Is this inherent with the old laserjets? I can't get the problem to occur on my Athlon PC (Win 98) She has a Pentium III. Could there be an incorrect setting in her Win 98SE? Someone told me something about changing front panel print menu from 300dpi to 150. Would that help?
