restart your machine and check to make sure that your "spooler" service has started successfully.

Why is there air? You need to provide us with a lot more information. You computer hardware configuration, OS and Manufacturer and printer interface, i.e. parallel...usb? If you are using XP, once connect the new printer and power it up XP will find it and then prompt you to put in the CD to install the appropriate drivers. Should be a "no brainer" but we need more information.
