Test Page failed to Print
Posted on 2006-04-25
I have a strange printing situation. I have one computer that has been working just fine with network printers until yesterday. Every time they try to print a test page, they get Test Page failed to Print, would you like to use the troubleshooter.
Of course this provides no assistance. So, I went to the server first and check to make sure the spooler was running and it was. No jobs were in the queue. Then I asked the other people who use these printers if they are working. They all are doing fine. So, this machine has a local printer which works just great! Thus the local spooler is working.
I thought it could be a profile issue, so I logged onto the computer installed the network printer and same problem.
The server is an NT 4.0 SP6a installed, all clients are XP PRO with SP2 and all updates applied.
I can fix the problem in 10 to 15 minutes. All files are stored on the server and I can shoot down an image of the machine, setup email and they are ready to go which is what I'm just about ready to do.
But before this happens, just wanted to see if anyone else has run across this situation before.
