OK I am stumped at even how to chase this problem. I have 3 printers on MS network 2003 OS on the server. Intermitantly experiencing print failures and with no one sending a print jobs they will fire up and print pages upon paged of garbage characters. Likely 75% of the time they work with no problem(s). Also experiencing problems printing to them using Citrix with the same results. Drivers are all up to date sp's are all up to date the network is new, about 15 users at present, with more comming that is why I need to fix this.

Thanks in advanced.

I'm not all that experienced, just a student at present, but just to get things moving along, how do have the printers connected to your network? Print Server? Are you using Active Directory?
