Unable to connect to a network printer when the computer boots


  • Hello,

    I have a network printer shared by a several XP and Win 7 computers.

    The problem is focused in only one of them - Win XP computer - .

    When I boot the computer and I try to print something, it appears to me the following error: "unable to connect to the printer, not ready". Then I add again the printer in computer from the printer server - W2008 printer server - , and works.

    But when I reboot the computer I found the same problem.

    I dont know what is causing this trouble.

    I would be very grateful if somebody could provide me some help to solve this issue.

  • iker garcia,

    Log out of the PC and Log In as an Administrator and check both the User Rights & The Share Names of the printer, as the particular user concerned may be denied access to the printer.
