We have HP LaserJet 8150. The issue is - it will print then it stop printing, we need to restart the printer, then it will print again but stop after few pages. I checked the network. Its fine. Any idea? Its printer itself?

Thank you

Is this a new printer?  Has it worked before?  Is the print queue setup to print in batch or after each page is rendered?

Are you using a real HP LJ 8150 driver or a LaserJet 4 emulated driver for example?

Its not a new printer - worked since yesterday. Just only one laptop use LaserJet 4 emulated driver - all other computers has HP LJ 8150 drive.

Are there any error messages showing up on the screen or on the log file?

Why not install the 8150 driver on the laptop as well?  It's possible that when the 4v driver is used it is sending some incompatible information that is locking up the 8150.
