Hi Everyone,
I have a rather unique problem (or at least for me it is). I am working on a friends computer he has a Dell Laptop (XP home, NAV 2005) that connects to Dell Wireless Router. I have connected his printer (dell 720) to a HP 310 JetDirect Print Server using LAN port 2 as a Ethernet Connector to the Print Server. The printer will print the entire job you send to it however the Dell Print monitor hits 99% and stays there. You have to delete the job manually and reboot the system in order to print again. I have updated the driver for the printer and used all tricks I could think of. I am pretty sure it is the print server as everything works fine if you are connected directly. I like to think that I am fairly knowledgeable about computers but this has me stuck.

Thanks for all your help

Rick :)

PS if there is any info that you need you can contact me at my email

I encountered this problem too. I believe it's to do with the lack of bi-directional support from print server to printer. Anyway, for me, the following simple hack worked:

1) Find DLBCPSWX.EXE (mine is in C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\) and rename it (e.g. NOT_HERE_DLBCPSWX.EXE)

2) If you can see DLBCPSWX.EXE in your task list, kill it.

This is an old thread, but I have this problem too. I have a Dell laptop (XP) and a Dell desktop (Vista), wireless print server, and an HP all-in-one that is connected to it. Print jobs will generally start, then stop half way through. Restarting helps, but doesn't always work. The problem occurs on both computers. It seems to stall more often with longer or color/high resolution documents.

I'm thinking of trying the above solution, but thought that since this was an older thread, that it would be worth bumping and seeing if there are any more direct fixes.

Thanks in advance.
