I have been having problems with an HP laserjet 1022n printer. It is connected via a network connection to the server running Windows Server 2003, and shared from there. I am no longer able to print. The error message that I received was:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7031
Time: 2:26:34 PM
The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 7 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

I believe that the problem is that the server is not recognizing the printer. I am unable to ping the printer. Furthermore, the network card on the printer has a solid yellow light and a flashing orange light. Any suggestions on how to proceed to troubleshoot? I am able to print to other network printers shared through the server.
