Default Re: Printer Help

My guess would be that the Print spooler has been placed in a disabled state somehow and is not restarting in automatic mode. Easiest way to check would be to go to Start-->Run-->type: msconfig, then hit Enter. A new box will come up and one of the tabs will say Services. Scroll the list and look for print spooler and make sure it's checked to be enabled each time you start up your computer.
You can also access your Services by right-clicking My Computer-->Manage-->Selecting Services in the left column and then scrolling the right column for Print Spooler and make sure it is started and set for automatic.
This would be my guess as to why your printer all of a sudden disappeared.
