Default HP Laserjet P1006 won't print (suddenly)???

I have no idea what is wrong here. Have been printing just fine for several weeks now with Vista as OS. Suddenly won't print. Tried delete from Control Panel, reinstalled software/drivers. Now Vista shows this as the default printer with docs in que to print, but won't print. Printer is newly new.
I am now downloading drivers from HP site, and will reboot.

I am out of ideas totally. Also, turned off printer, unplugged USB, turned on printer and replugged the USB. Also rebooted 3 times.

Any suggestions are most appreciated.

Here is the latest error message I get when trying to print.
I think I have done everything I can think of at this point.
This error can appear if a default printer has not been designated or if the application is unable to locate an existing default printer. To correct this problem, try one of the following in Microsoft Windows:

If a printer is not available in the Print dialog box, add a printer.
If the application cannot find an existing printer that is already installed, set the printer as the default printer.
If a default printer is installed but the application is unable to use it, uninstall the printer driver, and then install the latest version of the printer driver.
If the printer is on a print server, make sure the printer is available, the network is functioning, the server is not stalled, the printer is not out of paper, or the printer is not suspended by the administrator. Printing issues associated with a network printer are best handled by your local network administrator.
For more information about setting up and troubleshooting printer connections, see Windows Help and Support. (Click the Start button, and then click Help and Support.)

Sorry about that. Guess I really was stressed. Now the error message says there is something wrong with the printer setup but I can't figure out what it is. Every time I go to print something the printer makes the usual noise, and then the doc to be printed just gets stuck in a que.

have you tried emptying your que (if other stuff is stuck in there)? checking to see if there are any error messages on your printer screen (if it has one)? have you tried to set it up on another comp to see if it still works? - sos

I have emptied the que, but no error messages, except saying something is wrong with printer setup which I can't figure out. I am about try attaching to another comp tomorrow night though.

Go here
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...435684&lang=en
and the printer will check if it needs updated software using an automated tool from HP.
