I have a IBM PC 340 and am on a peer-to-peer network.  The network printer is a Lexmark Optra R+.  Everyone else on the network is printing okay.  I used to print okay as well until recently.  It will print the first page of a document and then the other pages will come out garbled.  I have re-installed the lexmark printer drivers but still garbage.  I have even re-installed Microsoft Office 95.  At one time I got a message saying MS32 spool error.  ANy ideas. Please help.

Have you tried running a virus scanner like McAfee?  I ran into this before and I found out that all the user's Word documents were infected with the "CAP A" virus.

Your spooling mechanism for windows has been corrupted. I had the same problem last year. You can solve it by deleteing all print drivers and reinstalling them.
If that doesn't work you will have to try reinstalling win '95

Actually, you need the updated printer driver.
You need to download it from the Lexmark website.  www.lexmark.com
The driver has just recently been updated with fixes.

In regards to the answer that you accepted; I thought you said you already did that?
