|I have a desk running Window XP Home, with a printer connected via a parallel port. I have a netbook running Windows 7 Starter. I've shared the printer and I can see it on the netbook. When I print from the XP machine it works fine. When I print to it from the Netbook, I get no error messages, but no output.|
If I 'pause' the printer and print from the Netbook, I can see the print job in the queue (and it appears just like a print job from the XP machine), but when I take it off pause, the job disappears as if it has been printed, but I still get no printed output. I've checked HP for the latest drivers, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, all to no avail. I wonder if it is something to do with losing the fact that the printer is on LPT1, and it sends it 'nowhere', but I can’t fathom it out. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem?
