Can not print to shared hp LaserJet 1300 PCL 5e - "The handle is invalid."

I am able to print to other printers, and other people can print to the hp LaserJet 1300 PCL 5e.

However, whenever I try to print to it, it says "The handle is invalid." -- This does not happen to other users...

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, and messing with the configurations settings. Perhaps someone else has some input on this.

This is running on a Windows XP machine.

Try the steps at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bpj06941 .  If the first step doesn't work any you need help finding an uninstaller then let me know.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I have resolved this issue by taking the unidrvui.dll, removing it, and replacing it with the one that comes with Windows XP. The printer is printing and is not spewign out errors. Thank you for your assistance though.
