Is the printer being connected directly to the various PCs or are you connecting via a network? If the latter are you connecting wirelessly or by an ethernet connector?

My MP250 is connected to Desktop via USB cable and always works from there.

Every few weeks or so, it does not respond to print jobs via LAN from laptop.

If I restart Print Spooler on laptop it works. It may play up for a day or two, then fine for weeks again.

Click Start/Run or Start/Search services.msc , scroll down and restart even if it is already running. Check it is also on Automatic.
