Windows 7: Networked Printer not printing unless restart Spooling

Networked Printer not printing unless restart Spooling

I have a Windows 7 x64 RC.7100 build installed and have configured my HP printer using Vista x64 drivers, it prints locally just fine. However I tried to setup printer sharing with my x32 Windows XP laptop and have an issue that is really a pain. Whenever I print from the XP machine I get the print job in the queue on the Win 7 machine, but it just says printing for an infinite amount of time. I have to either restart my Windows 7 machine or go into Services and Print Spooling and Restart Service for the print job to complete. I found a similar error/problem with Vista but all of the suggestions did not help. The only thing I can think of is that there is some driver incompatibility, but HP states on their website that they wont have "official drivers" for Windows 7 until Oct 22. Thanks HP, any other suggestions?

Does your printer have ethernet, or does your router support USB network devices? Could you connect your printer directly to router as a network printer?

Sorry I left out the printer model. It is an HP LaserJet 1022, so unfortunately there is no ethernet jack on it.

OK. 1022 is a PCL 5e printer. 1022 only USB, 1022n USB & ethernet and 1022nw USB, ethernet and WiFi. It's no longer in production. The drivers for this model are outdated, last version from 2007. That could be a problem.

IMO opinion a LaserJet 1200 Series PCL 5 driver should work with your printer and Windows 7. You could try to replace your drivers from Devices and Printers > Add printer > HP LaserJet 1200 Series PCL5.

I still think the best option is to connect it to network rather than to a computer. If your router/modem has no USB port, buying a network USB hub could be a solution.

Hope you can fix your issue.

thanks for the suggestion, but no luck with those drivers. I was not able to even print locally with those. I guess I will have to just wait and see if HP comes through closer to the Win 7 official release and if not then I will look into a network printing option. Thanks

I have had a similar issue with my HP Colour LaserJet 1600 but found a solution that might work for you.

Go to the Port printer properties for the printer and switch off 'Enable bidirectional support'

I hope that helps
