    This one computer was fine for a while, then was getting a message stating
    that the print job failed. I removed the driver, reinstalled, and nothing. I
    then rebooting the PC hosting the printer, did a test print from that host,
    and all was fine again - for a while. A few days later the same thing
    happened, and the fix was the same. It started to happen more often, and
    finally the fix won't work, and so now I can't print form that computer.

    Computer specific problem I thought at first. I then changed to an older
    user account, and the printing works fine, so it's just that one user.
    Create a new account and copy all settings you say? That's a bit of a pain,
    and I'll do it if all else fails, but I would like a better solution, if
    anyone can please suggest one. PLEASE tell me there's a better way to fix

    Thanks in advance.

    OK, sorry about that. It's Window XP (home, SP2), and HP 1210xi. I
    downloaded the latest drivers off the web. Again, it works nder one
    username, and not under the other. I'm assuming there are subtle changes per
    user that can affect drivers and other settings.

    Any clues?
