Just had this problem with my parent's network.

Solved it by mapping the local printer port on the offending machine to the network printer thus :

net use lpt1 \\server\HPLaserJ

...and installed the printer on the 'virtual' lpt1, not entirely sure what the problem was, but this solved it.

ok with mids solution it all seemed to work fine, but now when i try to print stuff (am doing all my testing with notepad)(also tried a test print) all that happened was that a blank piece of paper came through the printer, so it can contact the printer, but why isnt it putting stuff on the paper
