AutoCAD Crashes When Plotting

Good Morning AutoCAD Users:

We are experiencing a strange problem with our drawing files when we attempt to plot a drawing that contains a polygonal viewport (6 sides) to any of our HP "pc3" plotter devices. In our West coast office they have an HP DesignJet 1050c and other HP laser Jet printers and when they try to plot a drawing with the multi sided viewport AutoCAD begins to make the plot but approximately 75% through the process AutoCAD simply crashes without any warning.

When they attempt to send a plot to another plotter device (JDL plotter, Canon printer, etc.) the drawing plots fine with no problems.

Has anyone seen this problem before and if so is there a work around or fix I can apply to resolve this problem...??

Any assistance would be appreciated.
