Default weird colors appear when I print.... help!

Hello! I am trying to print by using either a photo or high resolution and the result was mostly in red! It looks just like an infra red colour, which is all wrong! I am not sure how to get the right colour as shown in the preview.... Thanks!

could be any number of things. Check you ink cartriges, check your printer driver, check the settings. Print a test page.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint

Im betting on low ink cartridges. Take them out, shake them, and see if you hear any liquid in them.
