start>control panel>Printers and other hardware>Printers and faxes

Right click on your printer and ensure that it is set as the "Default Printer"

It sounds like a driver problem. Try removing the printer: My Computer>System Properties>Hardware or Control Panel> Printers. Then reboot and let Windows find the drivers again. You could also just pull out the USB lead then replace it and see if new hardware is found. Let us know how you get on.
