Question about Print Servers
I have a network printer that is not printing all the text I send to it. Another lap top on the same network has no problem. It used to print properly, just stopped printing properly after the holidays, Merry Christmas I guess!
Hello Begg, I don't think your solution is right. I agree, Silly
Puddy isn't clear either "printer stopped printing properly".
If we asume the printer didn't print anymore after a while,
it is a cable-conectivity / or firewall problem.
XP Service Pack 2 has a new feature
DEPdata execution prevention (DEP). This precents code execution in memory regions already marked as storage. This is a powerful tool against buffer overrun exploits.
If a program is failing and you want to disable DEP to see if that is the cause. Here are the steps. (Just disable DEP for the program in question... don't disable it for your whole system.)
1. Click Start
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select System
4. Click the Advanced tab
5. In the Performance region select Settings
6. Click the Data Execute tab in the dialog box that opens
7. Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select
8. Click Add.
9. The open dialog box will open. Browse and select your application. (printer software in this case)
10. Click Open
11. Click Apply
12. Click Ok

Try going to the Add/Remove programs and remove the drivers for your printer, then reboot, reinstall then, connect to the network printer, and try again,

The solution provided by 'petrumusic' is correct. I had a similar problem with my Konica-Minolta 2400W which has been going on for some time now and getting worse. In many instances there was no error reported, but I finally saw a PRINT OVERRUN error show up. This problem started in my old PC running W2K and it seemed to be more paper jam oriented, although there never was any paper jams. Last Aug. 2008 a bought a new PC with 4Gig memory and 1533 FSB. I started experiencing the same problems forcing multiple repeat prints to get everything, and I was doing only single pages of my multipage doc as they were double sided. Doing a single page probably minimized the print overrun problem which was very evident when I tried to print 6 pages of a document.
So I followed the DEP procedure and voila, exceoting the printer driver program solved the problem.
