Default HP LaserJet 4 Plus doesn't print

Suddenly my HP LaserJet 4 Plus won't print. All print jobs just accumulate in the print queue until I cancel them. I can wait a bit and then see a message down in the lower right corner saying that the print failed. That provides a whole long string of troubleshooting questions from Microsoft, none of which are of any help. No, it doesn't print from Notepad.

Worse, it doesn't print from the other boot of my dual boot Win XP Pro computer. The other boot is an independent OS, with its own printer drivers, but that boot does exactly the same thing as the primary boot. No, I haven't reinstalled the printer drivers. Could that help?

While the printer is old, it has been faithfully working for years, with a checkup along with replacement of the top paper drive wheels a few months ago. I have tried all the remedies that MS suggests. Natually I can take it to the repair shop again, but maybe there is some other idea to try.

With some moving around, I could try it on my wife's Win XP Home Edition computer. If it works there, then there is something peculiar about my Win dows XP computer, in two boots, but if not, the shop is the next step.
