I have an HP LaserJet 1200 printer. The OS is Win98.
The printer inconsistantly freezes after giving it a print job. Usually, the printing icon is in the tray, but nothing happens. Any other jobs sent are cued behind the intial job, which shows a print status, but nothing is printing. Sometimes i send a print command and there is no print icon and nothing prints at all. I have to reboot. This happens once in a while, most often when other programs are open. It happens in almost all of the programs i use to print, such as WORD, QB and Outlook. It usually will print once I close all of the programs open. Sometimes I have to reboot. I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting this problem as it seems inconsistant and may only happen once or twice in a week. I updated the driver.
Is any one familiar with this problem?

Thanks for any help.

make sure in your bios that your printer port is set to EPP or SPP not ECP...
i really dont think that laserjets support ECP ports...
let me know what you come up with..
