Check Event viewer for error relating to this problem. Start/Control panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer. Check both software and system logs.

i looked at event viewer which only shows application,security,system,antivirus and it confused me as system errors run from jan 2007 as latest error and application errors are dated 2074 or 2006 i am now very confused.

Try unpluging printer. then uninstaling software. Reboot pc then reinstall software and printer.

Would you happen to have this printer plugged into a BT home hub ? if so the single print job only is a known problem (and sadly to my knowledge unsolved to date) with the hubs built in print server
