General discussion



By Willshoot ·
I have a windows XP machine that until recently was able to detect and use all network printers in my company. It has recently gone down and can no longer discover any printers that are not directly connected to it and is unable to print to any others. I have no idea as to the cause of this and would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".

But in the mean time what has been changed on this system?

Can it connect to the remainder of the Network without problems?

Have you tried removing any recently applied Windows Patches to see if this fixes the situation?
