Question Win2k & Printer issue

For whatever reason we have Windows 2000 machines that just lose all of their printers. Doesn't matter if they are local or network....they are just gone.

Brand name doesn't matter...we've had HP and Xerox do it alike.

When you go to print, says there are no printers detected.

When you go to add a printer it says no available resources.

Have you installed the drivers and software? What about system specs? Have you done any troubleshooting on the machines for anything?

Make sure the print spooler service is running and set to automatic.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Networked printers?

Drivers installed on host machines?

printers connected wirelessly?
