How to Fix ‘HP LaserJet 1100 Can’t Print to a Shared Network Printer’

You may not be able to print to your shared HP LaserJet 1100 printer if there are print jobs stuck in the print queue. When you try to print, nothing comes but the print queue shows Printing in the status. There can be various reasons for this to happen. Check the steps given below and fix the problem in your HP LaserJet 1100 printer.
1. Click the Start button> Devices and Printers> right-click your HP printer and select Properties. If you are using Windows XP, click Start> Printers and Faxes.
2. Click the Ports tab and remove check mark from the Enable Bidirectional Support box. Click OK or Apply and OK in sequence whichever you see on the screen to save changes and exit the window. (See Also how to install HP printer on a Dell computer)

3. Also check if the Print Spooler service is running or not. Click the Start button> type ‘services’ in the Start Search bar. Right-click Services.msc and click Run as administrator. You can type this command in the Run window if you have Windows XP.
4. Look for Print Spooler and check its status. It should be set to Started. If it’s stopped, right-click Print Spooler and click Start. Even if the status says Started, restart the service.
5. Exit the window and start printing. Your HP printer should print fine now. You should also update HP printer drivers regularly to make sure that it works fine.
