Windows 7: Network Printing Issue

Windows 7
Network Printing Issue

Firstly hello to everyone its my first post here :)

I am having problems with network printing, I have a Lexmark X3470 connected to a Win 7 machine I can print fine directly from this PC.

I also have a XP laptop and am having problems printing from it over the network
I have added the printer fine on the XP machine and if I print something it arrives at the print queue on the Win 7 machine with the status "Deleting - Sent to printer" but well nothing happens.

Although when I print on the Windows 7 pc I get the pop ups etc from the lexmark software telling me the ink levels while it prints, when I send a print from the XP machine although it shows in the Windows 7 print queue the lexmark software doesn't do anything.

No idea what else I can try i have the latest drivers on both machines.

Are the XP and 7 machines in different locations?

Can you print directly via USB on the 7 machine?
