I have a network set up with a printer and it has worked fine for a couple of years. Suddenly my laptop will not print to the printer. I have tried restarting, using system restore, etc. When I attempt to print I just get a print failed message. I have tried to print a test page and that doesn't work either. If I go to another computer the printer works fine. The printer is listed as my default printer. I don't know what I could have done to cause this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Uninstall the printer from the laptop.
Control Panel Printers and faxes.
On left pane click add printer
Using the wizard then check Network printer and follow instructions.
