And your printer is...?

I doubt that many people here print color separations. (Most may not know what they are. I've heard of them, but never had anything to do with them.)

"Error 5" sounds like something is corrupted in your WIndows installation.

It's beyond my ability to diagnose.

According to the manufacturer of laserjet it is natively supported in Win 7 and therefore does not need a driver.
