There are so many possibilities that it would be difficult to really pin down the cause of such a problem. One thing is to check the ink to be sure it is fresh. If you don't print on an inkjet almost everyday, the heads tend to dry out and you can get points that don't fire properly. Or one of the colors can be missing or low. You can also be using the wrong type of paper. For example I found low priced paper once that I used in my Canon and it was extremely noisy. To make a fair test, try printing with brand new ink and with the paper recommended by the printer manufacturer.
