Try this it may help, let me know is that help you.

Run scandisk in windows, choice Thorough, click Automaically fix errors.  Then Click Advanced icon, in advanced options goto cross-linked files click delete, now goto lost files fragment, pick Free.  Click OK buttom for leave the screen, and now start the scandisk.  Depending the size of your drive, and number of your files, that may takes you one to three hours to scan the disk.  If it still lock up in this processing, you may have problem with your drive.  Back up all your data before the drive goes bad.

PS.  Disable screen saver and all other applications, Including the MS Office task bar. Removed all CHK files. Before you run the scandisk in my way.

What are you trying to print, what application are you printing from?
Does this happen whenever you try to print any document?  Or is it just this one?
What kind of printer are you printing to?

How much free disk space do you have on your C: Drive?

Let me know
