My printer is online, connected with the USB to my computer, and it has full power. Okay the problem is that when I try to get something printed it says in the printing manager box that the page is printing. I wait for 1 full minute, but nothing happens.

Can someone help me fix my printer? It doesn't seem to print anymore, *sigh* -_-'

I guessing that you have already done the visual thing and made sure that there aren't any paper jams or unplugged cords. Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any errors in the USB printing support under the USB controllers?

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager. When you open the Device Manager go down the Universal Serial Bus controllers and click in the box with the + inside it to extend the tree so that you can see the printing support. An error will appear as a red X.

The link you have provided helped a bit, but it wasn't for Windows Vista. Anyways I tried printing a test page and it printed to my surprise I thought it wasn't going to work. I think it's all good. Thanks everyone who helped. =)

FWIW, I have an HP All In One Printer. Sometimes I have the same problem with printing.
The first time it happened, I got so disgusted I turned off my computer. When I turned it back on,
the printer kicked in and printed out my pages. What I wanted to print was 2 pages, I ended up with 8 copies of both pages, because it had been in the queue 8 times and I couldn't clear it.
Not exactly the best way to get your printer working, but something you might try if it happens again.
My printer is possessed, sometimes it works right off the bat, other times it won't print until I reboot.

That's the same problem I had Queen!

Is it hardware problems or something?

I have no clue what causes it to happen.

I also have this happen occasionally (printer model doesn't matter)...in each case (for some reason) the printer queue has become clogged and printing does not take place, even though the queue reflects that it's trying to print.

My solution is to delete the items in the queue...or, if that doesn't do it, simply delete the printer and reinstall it (which clears the stuck queue).

Simply reinstalling the printer (without deleting the problematical one) will simply result in alternate printer installs, with one good and one bad.

I suspect this happens when one of the key files gets corrupted.
