Vista "Error - printing" while trying to print from HP 6310 Officejet All-in-One.

I used this printer on XP for years with no issues. But have not been able to use it on Vista. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the VISTA version of driver downloaded from HP's website but noting has worked so far. Have tried all the USB ports in the front and back of the system but no luck. The printer works fine on XP mahine. I have many forums with same isse, but none of them seem have the answer for this. Can this be a problem for the spooler? Please help!

Thanks in advance.
