Default can't print from laptop

I have a desktop and a laptop, both running Win7-64. I've been able to print to either of my printers from the laptop, but now it says Server Offline and won't send print jobs out. The printers are set to Share.
I don't have a server, and the desktop is running (not sleeping). What happened, and how do I fix it?

Default Re: can't print from laptop

I fixed it. I uninstalled the printers, then reinstalled them as networked, instead of local printers.
