Can't print to Officejet L7700

For some reason I am unable to print to hp officejet L7700 from 1 PC in office. I am able to ping printer from the PC. I tried removing, then downloading and installing latest print driver, still unable to print. I can't even print a test page. It just gives an error saying it can't commincate.

Has anyone experienced anything like this, Please help, I have tried all of the usual thing like I mentioned above.

I'm on XP Pro

I would force clean out the print spooler
go to Start run type services.msc go down to print spooler and select stop leave stopped for the next step.
go to C:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS and delete anything found in the folder then close

now go back and restart the print spooler and make sure that it is set to automatic.
try a driver test page from the general tab in the driver

Hope it helps!

Make sure your PC is on the same network. If not you may have to restart.

To check:
Right click my computer >>  Click properties >> Click Computer Name  

Look at the work group and compare to the other computers. If different, could be your problem (assuming it is a network printer).

To change the workgroup, click change. You will have to restart your computer in order to see the change.

If that doesn't work, I know something else it could be, but you can start there.
