I am using a Windows 7 Professional on my laptop connected to my company's network. For the month since buying the new laptop I have been printing without any problems but suddenly I cannot print ANYTHING neither here at the office nor via Wifi on my home printer.
At the office I had configured my printers as "local
" through "standard TCP/IP port
" and defined the IP addresses of the printers. This setup has been working 100% flawlessly. Now nothing. I have tried:
Looked at Services to make sure the Print Spooler service is running which it is but just for good measure stopped and re-started.
Uninstalled and re-installed the printers changing the default printers to no effect.
Followed some advice from forums and switched off SNMP -nothing
I have gone into "Programs and Features" and switched on LPD Print Service as someone else suggested.
Downloaded the MS troubleshooting tool to no avail
Pinged the printers and they all respond OK
Using the printers' IP address I have logged into the printers Config application and reset the printer successfully
Disabled iPv6 but made no difference
Everyone else in the office is printing fine on the very same printers.
I am DESPERATE as I cannot print ANYTHING, ANYWHERE!
Please please help if you think I have left something out.
Regards and thanx in advance
