HP Printer Drivers and XP SP3

HP Printer Drivers and XP SP3

HP Printer Drivers and XP SP3

I manage a LAN with <100 users and recently started upgrading the XP Pro machines to service pack 3, the SP3 machines are not allowing deployment of HP Printers, we have 4200n,4250n,4600n,4650n and 4700n models and the clients would normally connect to their printers at logon, but SP3 machine do not seem to like the drivers and display an Error: the print server does not have the correct driver, click to browse for driver etc, as a workaround I am installing the drivers manually on each client, once the drivers are onboard the error messages stop and printers are assigned
The SP2 machines use the same drivers with no problems

Clients XP Pro SP2 and SP3
server S2003 std SP2 R2
using Scriptlogic Desktop authority to deploy and assign printers,
Tried HP  support, they advised using universal PCL5 driver but the problem persists

Is this an SP3 issue?

I would be grateful for any suggestions or to hear if anybody else has come across this issue

Many Thanks
