For debugging purposes, I moved it from the Dell and made it a direct connect printer on my HP Desktop. XP found and installed the driver, but when I print to it, it spools, I see the pages building up (10 all together), the printer light flashes as if it's going to print, then poof, it's gone. The spool is empty and the printer does nothing.
I downloaded and installed the latest driver from HP, no change same problem. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer several times with no change.
Next I went into BIOS and changed the Parallel port setup from DCP to Normal to see if that made any difference, it didn't.
Then I went into the printer properties and disabled spooling so I print directly to the printer, still no change. The printer light blinks for a bit then stops and nothing prints.
I'm ready to move it back to the Dell Web Server and see if it works there but was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions on troubleshooting this.
I posted here as I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.
