    I have two HP printers hooked up to my mom's computer through USB, and I have her sharing these printers. When I go to print through them using Windows Printing, the printers are recognized, the jobs are sent and then they immediately stop themselves. If I go to start the job again, it just stops itself again.

    What is going on, and how do I fix it?

    Thanks

    I had the same problem on and off with an Imac, sometimes it would print great, other times not. Eventually I just picked up a cheap $70 usb print server, and it works great. No more having to make sure the imac was up and on .

    Yes, the print que shows the job, and then shows that the job is being initialized. And then it just says "Stopped". I dont hit any buttons, it just stops.
