Sharing printer in windows XP has problemsLocked
I have a laser printer conencted through USB to my desktop running windows XP home. The printer is shared. On my laptop also running windows XP home I am able to install and see the printer and I can print to it. However nothing prints. When I check on my desktop I can see the printer and the print jobs queued up, but I cna’t get them to print. I have tried turning the printer on and off, changing the priority on teh print jobs, pausing and restarting printing. Nothing.
Then I restart windoes on the desktop, and as soon as windows starts, the printer start up and prints all my queued up jobs.
I have repeated this many times (too many times), include printing from other laptops and always get the same results.
