HP 4515n Printer issues

So we switched our NJ office over to Win7 64 bit from WinXP machines. They have a Server 2003 DC there.

So I couldn't use the DC as a print server because it doesn't have valid drivers for Win7 64 bit.

So I installed the printer locally on each PC using the latest HP drivers, however it's printing erratic.

It will work fine for a few hours then the printer gets hung up. Usually have to power cycle it and then it will print fine again for a while.

Same issue for everyone.

Anyone have suggestions for a good solution with this setup?

printer: HP Laserjet 4515n
server Win 2003
PC's Win7 64 bit

Sounds like you may need to update te firmware on the printer. I had a similar issue with Win 7 64 bit machines on HP printers. The firmware update did the trick.
