Shared HP Laserjet 4 Plus stops printing until reboot
Posted on 2003-03-24
OK I've got a windows XP Pro & Home network here with 5 PCs. I've got a laser printer connected via LTP to my one of the comps. Everyone in the office prints to this printer, and occasionally, even though everything seems to be working fine and even when that comp is not being used, printing will just stop suddenly. No error messages or anything. The print jobs just build up in the queue on the comp. As soon as the computer with the printer is restarted, the printing begins again and comes out fine with no mistakes at all.
So the problem is somewhere between that computer and the printer... I have reinstalled the printer drivers as well... Is there anything that could be interfering with the process? Could I possibly need more ram in that machine? It has worked forever, and now it just doesnt.... I'm out of ideas...
