Laptop keeps losing printer driver

  sputnick 17:00 26 Mar 10

My friend recently purchased a new W7 PC and laptop. The PC connects to the Epson printer by cable and the laptop by Wi-Fi.
But the laptop keeps losing connection with the printer, in device manager, printer properties has the printer driver grayed out each time although it states that all drivers are working correctly.
This happens every couple of weeks.
I have rolled back to a restore point but does not cure it.Re-installing drivers usually adds another printer icon.
Has anyone any idea why we keep losing this connection.

get this occasionally too, have a hp printer usb to w7 pc and wifi to xp laptop and every so often have to reinstall printer driver on the laptop but do not get excess of printer icons.

no idea what causes it.
