Check the print spooler service on the PC.  Sometimes those small printers disable it.

Right Click "My Computer", Click "Manage", Expand "Services and Applications", Click on Services.  In the left pane, scroll down to "Print Spooler" and ensure that "started" is diplayed under the status column.  If not, Right Click on "Print Spooler", then click Start.
