I dont know my current print state, (everything works).. 

But read this one, it has a bit of all the things i know you can try. 

ComputerPol/System/Driver installation ( something like that, its in dutch here.) 
I have these GUID assinged that users can install "some" device drivers. 

I hope that helps.
