Sharp 1642CS shared printer

I have a sharp 1642CS connected to a desktop running Vista Home Basic and it works fine. I have set it up for shared printer and when I use my laptop with Vista Home Premium when I print a test page it only prints blank pages.

    The desktop has the new vista drivers installed and prints just fine. The laptop is set to use this printer as shared. It appears to get the drivers from the destop. There doesn't seem to be a way for me to load drivers for a shared printer.

You can go into your print driver and change the Driver. I dont think there is a difference between Home or Prem drivers. There is how ever a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Vista?
When you set up the printer and share it from a PC, The printer attached to that PC can Control the Configurartion of the printer. PC's can either pull the driver from the sharing PC or you can select your own.

I would first check that the correct drivers are installed, (64bit or 32bit)
I would check the computer that is trying to print. replace the driver with the correct one.
You can open the print server -open the printers and fax folder, right click in a white area in that folder, a menu should pop up. Select Print Server from there you will see tabs, try to replace the driver from there.
Or Open the Printer Properties and there you will see Driver-Update in there.

This is a link to an explanation
Thou it was made for XP but the basic Infomation is the same.
-->Print a test page from The Printer Properties), if it works the Computer is fine, if you try to print from a program and it prints with errors. it is in the program..

As your printer is not wireless itself I assume you shared the printer. To enable this again goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps,www.PuterCare.com

Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.
