function address 0x4f55feed with HP printers

i get this message  function address 0x4f55feed when i try to see the printer's properties from my HP printers (several printers) . My server is Windows Server 2003.

I feel swindled with the answer that I see a similar problem here.  What is the technical base of this reasoning?

Try turnign it off for 10 minutes then turnign it back on. That is all I could find that could possibly help you as I can't find anything related to that error message. """"

Lets just clarify a couple of things.

You've got several printers install on a Windows Server 2003.
When you go Start --> Printers and Faxes --> Right-click printer --> Properties
Then on some printers you get the error you mentioned.
Is this correct?

I have 200 printers, mor o less, intalled in a cluster with Windows Server 2003. This Cluster is an active-active cluster with the printers balanced (or defined) in both nodes (Fifty-Fifty).

The problem that I mentioned appears randomly. An user try to print from his workstation (Win XP SP2) o try to see the properties for the  printer and gets the "function address 0x4f55feed " error message. This message appear on the server too (randomly).

When the problem is present on the user's workstation, the only way for solve the problem is printing a test page from the printer defined on the Server, and voila! no more problems during certain time. But it can return to repeat this situation.

When the problem is present on the server the solution is delete the printer and recreate it.

Thanks for your comments!.

I can't find anything related to the specific error message you are getting, but there are a few things to try to fix a problem involving a function address error message.

1. Make sure your server has all the latest service packs.

2. Download the latest printer drivers for effected printers - HP quite often update their printers driver, and are available from the hp website. Another suggestion is to try a 'downgrade' driver version on an newer printer (for example, use a HP 4000 driver on a 4050 or 4100 printer printer)

3. Remove an 'extra' software that gets installed when you install certain printer drivers - some printer toolbox utilites can conflict and cause error messages.
