Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
How is the printer connected (USB, LAN, wireless....)?
Is only the one computer connected to it, or do you have any other computers connected to it?
Do you have any other printers connected to your computer?
Does it print any faster if you connect it with a wire?
Ok, this can happen if you try to send a very large file to the printer.
What size is the document that you are trying to send?
Can you try sending a smaller document, e.g. a few words on one page, and let me know if it prints quickly, or not?
Ok, and what is the file type of the 1.7MB file? Is it also a Word doc?
