Hi I am a new user to using a networked computer. I am using a shared printer. When i try to print something it tells me "Operation could not be completed. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly, or the specified has lost its connection to the server. I know the printer name was not typed incorrectly because it was setup by a technician. It worked well the first night but, not since then. Is there anyone who might be able to help me. Please!
