check driver.
compare driver on Pc which pritns OK, with the problematic one.
Is the printer shared? How? Connected to print server or just shared from PC? Have all PCs the same operating system and the same bits (32-bit vs. 64-bit)

On the problem machine, I would uninstall the printer from Devices and Printers and then (also in Devices and Printer) go to the Printer Server Properties tab and remove the driver. After removing the driver, close out, restart the computer and reinstall the printer. It should work if nothing else is wrong.

Is this happening from all applications, or just from one? If it's a document with both text & graphics, does it print just the text, or nothing?

Try the following applications: Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word (with imported pictures), Windows Photo Viewer.

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

Are you talking about printing a web page, where one PC prints the images on the page and the other doesn't?

If so, please tell us what browser is being used on the computer that you want the images to be included in the print-outs of web pages.

Sorry for delayed response...XP to Win7 upgrades have been a large task and some Printer Driver maladies continue to generate new issues :-))
