HP laserjet 5si mopier Windows 2003 Enterprise or small business driver

I have the printer working before on 2003 small business server. Recently It doesn't work.

I wonder where I can get the driver for Windows 2003 Enterprise or small businessserver. On HP website they don't have the driver for servers.

I will user the server as a printer server so other computer can print through it.

Thanks,


Steve

There is a Microsoft-provided driver for the Laserjet 5si on the Windows 2003 Server OS.  Just add the printer and when you get to the driver install part, click on HP on the list of manufacturers provided by the OS, and then scroll down the list of printers until you find your Laserjet 5si Mopier.

Hypercat,

Thanks,

The IP address is 192.168.16.31

I used a standard tcp/ip port using that IP address.

I did that but I still get error when test printing.

Any other idea?

I did what you said. The printing didn't work and has error message.

I shutdown the printer and leave a for 10 minutes.

After I turned it on, the printing worked. But it worked only for the first two printing jobs.

Now the printer has no response at all.  The printing job shows error in the "status"

Thanks,

Steve

I hate to say this, because your management probably won't like the answer, but I think it's time to replace this printer.  This is an ancient piece of equipment, and it's entirely possible that the problem is with the printer hardware, not the server at all.  In ordinary circumstances, I would recommend replacing the NIC card in the printer, but I'm not even sure that you could get a replacement part at this point.

I agree. Before you said that I wondered that the printer might be gone already and I don't think it worth my time to fix it.

for the NIC you mentioned, I have a back up NIC card and I am going to give it a try.

Thanks,

If you spend a few minutes replacing the NIC and it still doesn't work, it seems like it would be wasting your time to spend any more of it on this ancient piece of technology. Donate it to your hardware museum (i.e., the dump) and get a new one with more features for less than half the price you originally paid for this one.
Good luck!

The backup NIC card is replaced and the printer works.

Thank you.
