No printer is available - error coming

By tkl1 ·
In windows98 network,
All of a sudden when we print thru' office 2000 or any application, "no printer is connected"is coming. The printers actually are connected via network and loacal port. This problem occurs 3 or 4 times in week.

After this Ihave to reload the printer driver and delete the old driver thru contol panel of windows98.

Suggest some permanent soln with out reloading Win98.

Bhasgaran.

Are you sure your students didn't boot with ESC in spite of login/password ?

Seems like a network default, not a PC default.

This is a printer driver problem. Win98 and Win2000 need to be using the same driver. Check both operating systems. Go to Control Panel, printers to check. Installing a generic printer driver should fix this, look at the examples when you install another printer driver in the control panel under install new printer. Sometimes using a Acrobat Reader printer helps.
Hope this helps.

also in networking make sure the other computers are off before installing new drivers or changing settings as this can corrupt the other computers,install on the host first, then turn it off, them one by one the others, otherwise one pc can still get corrupted drivers.
