Network printer error

Last response: in Networking

I am running Win7 on my desktop and laptop in a LAN. The desktop is setup as the printer server. When I setup shared printing I can print just fine from the laptop, but cannot print from the desktop - the printer ejects blank paper.

Any ideas?

What is the printer model?

To fix you can download the latest driver from the manufacturers website and try re-installing the printer.

Is it set up VIA USB on the computer or is it a networked printer VIA IP Address?

It is a HP 2175, setup via USB. The new driver did the trick - thanks.
