I'm having trouble with an HP PSC 2175 all-in-one printer. I need to print a set of invitations for an upcoming get-together. The invitations are smaller than regular letter size (8.5x11 in) paper. However, I can't print the invitations because I can't change the paper size! Changing the paper size under "Page Setup" in Microsoft Word has no effect; the printer still treats the invitations as letter size paper. When I try to change the paper size by going to the printer properties, the computer locks up! It says: "[program] has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Can someone help me fix this!?
(Printing using a pre-defined paper size DOES work, but I can't use a custom size.)

Your printer accepts only letter, a4, and 4x6 photo paper.

I don't think that's true because I can print on a 3x5 index card without any trouble. The only problem I'm having is setting the page size to a custom setting. Printing on the pre-defined page sizes is no problem.

Thank you for all your help. It hadn't occurred to me before that simply changing the paper margins would fix the problem.
