Printing to Laser with WinXP and Office 03

By dcarry ·
We are having trouble printing over a (NT 4.0 and Win 2k Server)network to laser jet printers using Windows XP and Office 2003. We recently began the upgrade to these versions from Windows 2000 and Office 2000. We had no problems before this conversion.

Drivers

by TheChas In reply to Printing to Laser with Wi ...

Does the printer manufacture have XP drivers for the printers you use?

The default XP drivers for most printers lack a lot of functionality. Beyond basic printing, they don't offer much.

If the printer manufacture does not offer a driver specifically for XP, I recommend adding new printers to the cost of your migration.

Office 2K3 & Printer Drivers

We had the same problem with several of our clients.

Changing the Drivers solved the problem.

In the mean while, until you fix the faulty driver, you can use "microsoft office ducument image writer" and then print.

Printers and NT with 2k, xp, clients

by Trien In reply to Printing to Laser with Wi ...

I currently admin a network of 30 computers all with 2k and xp, my server is nT and we have had several problems with printers, reinstalling helps, but I believe the best bet will be do upgrade your nt servers to windows 2000 or higher. That is what I am in the process of doing and it should solve all my printer problems.
