Default Spooler?

So my bosses laptop, like new Dell is having an issue with printer connectivity: it recognizes the multiple printers that we've tested, but every so often, more often than not an error will occur about the "spooler" I shoot myself now for not jottin' down the exact message that appeared.

Does this sound familar to anyone?

I'll try to get a more specific error message if neccesary.

Thanks !!

what drivers would I update? For the printer or specified laptop?

And I couldn't imagine this is a new 'dell issue' as :

This poster, had the issue in 2005, or at least it sounds similar.


Thanks ! Still investigating

It's most likely the printer driver that needs upgrading.

How are you connected to the printer, that could make all the difference here.
