Xp Workstation randomly loses default printer

By pbelles ·
I have an office of 7 workstations setup the same way sharing 2 network printers One of those workstaations randomly loses the default printer. displayes message no default printer please select printer. it allowes you to select the printer and set it as default for a while then randomly does the same thing. The other 6 workstations are fine. So I believe it is workstation specific. Any ideas?

strange problem. maybe it has afaulty network card? you can swap that out and try that, if that doesnt work reinstall windows, trust me it would be quicker than trying to narrow down the fault further :)

Re. Xp Workstation randomly loses default printer

Have you gone into the "network" section?, in there you will be able to select "turn off this device to save power" to "enable" or remove the tick that might be in the box. Hope this works for you. Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

Network?

In your "network connections", just look for your "local area connection" and click on it. Go to properties > configure > power management, there should be a box that will most proberly have a tick on it, just click on it, then exit after that test out your networked printer. Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.
