We have four computers on a local network, all using Windows XP. Three out of the four computers are printing, but when I try to print from the fourth computer, a message comes up "the printer could not print anymore because the port is in use". Less than a minute later another message comes up "Error intitializing output device". I've never seen these messages before and don't know how to fix the problem. Please help! Thanks.

delete all printers from that computer and then remap the printers.
