Excel 2010 Print gridlines

i have a large (very!) sheet that used to print gridlines in excel 2003. now we've upgraded to 2010, gridlines show on screen ok but printing seems to have a mind of its own. sometimes every other line prints other times its can be a random selection that print. everything else is ok, just gridlines that are fubar.

i know i could use borders but they're too dark

Same issue here. If I print to another printer, it seems to work fine, however not convenient. The gridlines either show every other one, or not at all. I have checked all the settings in page layout as well. I've even uninstalled and re-installed the printer and made sure I used the most updated driver. PLEASE.. any suggestions?
