Print Server Config and Error when printing

I have a Server 2008r2 roled as a Print Server. Installed printer, drivers, and port assignments. Shared the printer, listed to AD, and it show in the Find Network Printers perfectly. The issue is when we send a test page or any print object it fails.
The Printer IP are statically set, not reserved in DHCP. Every thing looks fine and the Print Server sees the clients and vice versa, that is how the client downloads the drivers for the networked printer. So, everything looks right.
The only question I have is possibly the .inf driver because there are nine from the package to choose from. Does any of this make sense?
Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

All is good with permissions. It is a HP CM4540 I installed the hpc4540c.inf.

Verify the IP address in on the printer and inside the printer properties > port tab on the printer installed on the server.  

In all honesty I would install the universal print drivers which are on the website after looking up the printer.

Unless all of your workstations are 64bit, I would install the 2008 (32bit and 64bit) vs just the 2008R2 driver.
