Good day, I am receiving this error when I try to print a
test page on a Network Printer. The full error message
is ...

"Test page failed to print. Would you like to view the
print trouble shooter for assistance? The data area
passed to a system call is too small."

Would anyone know what I should do to resolve this problem?


Thank you
Teka

A couple of ideas that may help...

In case there is port corruption, you may also want to delete the printer,
remove the port in the registry, and try re-creating it again.
