Problems using a server 2003, windows 7 and a printer hp lasejet 1022

HI

We have a windows server 2003 x64 with an HP laserjet 1022 printer connected to it, and we have some computers (with windows 7 and xp) that uses that printer as a shared resource.

The problem is that eventually the printer stops workng and the sent printing jobs are pending....why?

have your tried restarting the printer spooler service on that server where the printer is hosted?

also just want to clear things.

You installed this printer on a Windows Server 2003 Environment, then share it so that client pc can connect to it. am I right?

There is a big possibility that the printer driver was removed or HP Printer Config was changed.

Any logs logged on Event Viewer?

I installed the driver that he recommends in windows server and xp, work well but windows 7 doesn´t work in any way now.

nice... so we have Windows 7 to troubleshoot.

Please do check if available drivers for Windows 7 are available for that printer.

What we did is to install a couple of printers in the server and configure them like this:

1. Laserjet 1022 (shared for computers with windows 7)
2. Laserjet III (shared for computers with windows XP)

Now everything is working very well.

I forgot to mention that we had to change the profile of the server users to administrators

I think HP must publish this situation on their tech support pages, not in their forums
