Need help with Printing from ubuntu to Vista

I have been trying to get this to work at home but, I am out of ideas and need some help. I have ubuntu 9.04 running on both my laptops, and running a dual boot vista / ubuntu on the desktop. Printer is connected to the desktop, and when in linux the printer works just fine printing from the laptops, but when in Vista I can see the print job come into the print queue in vista, but then it just stays there. To remove it I have to uninstall the printer and driver, reboot, and reinstall the printer again. I hope someone can help me with this, I know that I can do this with a print server but I would like to know if there is a fix for this before I go out and buy one.

Thanks

Make sure you got the latest updates/drivers. The install disc you got with the printer most likely contains outdated software. A lot of these printers (especially from HP) require you to start the installation and power on the printer at a paticular step in the setup proccess. If you can skip checking you might want to also try that if you're still having problems and than power on the printer after the software/driver for it have been successfully installed.
