Print Jobs Dieing -- Using Windows 2000 Server as Print Server

About 2 hours ago our lanier Multi-function Print Device stopped printing.  We use a Windows 2000 Server as a print server and I went there to see waht was going on.  Jobs were piling up but it wasn't printing.  Plenty of RAM and Hard disk space on the Server.  Any ideas?

Some clown changed the printer driver so that it was no longer using the correct IP address.  I will give the points to AndreDekolta because reinstalling the printer would have involved selecting the correct driver or re-entering the driver information and that would have solved the problem.
