And as you see it is very similar to errors I described in other articles. If this happens only to one printer and you can easily connect others thats surely the drivers deal and you should find newest driver for your printer on the web.

However, if printer refuses to connect even with the newest driver here what you can do. There is standard Microsoft multi-system automatic Fix It tool that is intended to work out such types of problems. It can be downloaded here: Microsoft Fix It for Print Spooler

It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, however you will need .NET Framework of at least 2.0 version to be installed on XP (Others have this by default). Basically, what it does is restarting spooler and cleaning cache, but if this operation is unsuccessful it restores all Print Spooler settings to default ones.

Other great tool that can help you in fix process is “cleanspl.exe” or CleanSpooler utility that is a part of Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit but works perfectly on other versions of Windows (except Windows 7).
