I am helping my mother set up her new HP dv7 laptop running Vista SP1 and an HP 6480 Wireless Printer. Everything went great during the install and the wireless printing was great. Now, every time I restart my machine or wake it up from sleep mode, the print jobs just get stuck in the queue. I have to manually go into services.msc and restart the print spooler, then it starts printing everything. I have tried both patches from HP for this printer and have tried everything they have mentioned, including reinstalling the software completely. Restarting the print spooler every damn time is the only thing that works. Anything else to try? Thanks!

Try going into services and for the spooler service, go to the Recovery tab. Have it restart on the first and second failure. See if that helps any.

BTW, wireless printers are sometimes very schizo. They work sometimes and other times they don't. I would hook up that thing to a USB or Network interface.

I hope this helps.
