There are two things that can limit the printable size:

1) the paper, as declared in the printer settings
2) the printer itself, that has physical limitations. This is reflected to the PC software by the printer driver: wrong driver, wrong size.

First check if some other software (word processor...) can use the A3 printer in all its glory.
