I've got a HP LaserJet 1020 printer connected to my 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate machine. I'm sharing this printer out. Got another 64-bit Windows 7 machine, with Home Premium. I installed the printer driver from HP for 64-bit on both machines. However, the strange thing is that if the Home Premium machine prints something, it never comes out unless I reboot the Ultimate machine.

This is less than optimal.

Any idea what's causing this and if there's anything I can do about it?

Your alternative to sharing printers is to use a usb print server. I've used my Netgear PS121 for years on various HP printers. Your LaserJet is not specifically mentioned, but I imagine it will work.
