Unable to print in WIndows xp printer.
Please be informed that I have 1 Desktop running Windows xp and one laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate at home.
Files and printer sharing is enabled in both the system and I am able to share files and folders.
Desktop is connected with a Lexmark X 4270 printer with USB cable and the printer is working fine.
My Windows 7 laptop can 'see' the printer but when I try to print nothing happens.
I have gone through various tutorials and tried uninstall and reinstall of the printer.
I also tried to install the printer as Local printer ( eg. //desktop/Lexmark).
I have installed the latest available driver and the printer works fine if it is connected physically to any system.
but No matter how I try I am unable to share the printer.
This extra info may help you:
The printer is visible from windows 7.
I can even change the settings from Windows 7.
Print spoller is active and starts automatically in both system.
Files and folders sharing is working fine.
As I have installed both Windows xp and Windows 7 in my laptop, the shared printer works fine if I boot into Windows xp from it.
Now what can I do to make the shared printer also work with my Windows 7?

Is it driver conflict?
As I am still trying to figure out the solution and uninstalled all the printer driver from both system. Here is what I found:
1. If I only install the printer as network printer in windows 7, it works fine and I can print anything using it.
2. As soon as I installed the printer in my Windows 7 (physically connecting it with Windows 7) it stops working. ( Win 7 can still 'see' the printer,though)
3. If the printer is installed physically in Windows 7 and also as a network printer in the same laptop it stops working.
Any tech Guru??
Thanking in advance !
