Printer sharing-1 laptop says driver missing but OK with other pc/



I have a wired home network set up with 1 pc and 2 laptops using vista and 1
pc using XP. I have a Dell AIO printer linked to the XP PC and have just
installed a new Epson printer to the Vista PC. Here's my problem - all PCs
and laptops recognise each other and recognise both printers. Both PCs and 1
of the laptops are connected to both printers but 1 of the PCs will not
connect to either printer and gives the error message that the wrong drivers
are installed. Since all the other computers recognise and connect to both
printers I don't see how this is the case.

I have tried everything to find out how to connect this laptop to at least
one of the printers, without any success. Can anyone help?

When using Printer over the Network. The drives has to be installed on the
computers thta are Not connected directly to printer too.
Use the Add Network printer option and install the drivers.
