Word 2007 Table Border Printing Problem

One of our users has a problem when printing tables in Word 2007 with no borders -- she prints the document and sometimes the borders print correctly (in other words, there are no lines showing on the printed copy).  She can print the exact same document again, the this time the border lines print.  It is a hit or miss problem, and I cannot pinpoint what the problem is.

Just as extra info, she can open a file with a table, print it and print it again without closing it.  The first time the table border do not print (which is correct), the second time they do.

Any light you can shed on this will be greatly appreciated!

What operating system is she using?  

Often word has border problems when the incorrect paper selections/margins are made.

Sometimes it is also an outdated or incorrect printer driver.
