My 870 does work under XP Home edition and the MS-supplied driver, but it's slow as molasses and the nice features under 'properties' are not available.

The HPIIP driver does work, but it's just as slow and prints 300dpi only. Seems pointless.

I was advised to try changing the printer mode in BIOS, from ECP to EPP; elsewhere, someone suggested "standard," not sure what that means.
Fiddling with these protocols didn't seem to help, but since you fellows seem to have different problems (and ain't that strange!), maybe this will work for you.
