I doubt that there is a problem with the printer itself because the other computers are able to use it.First, ask yourself some questions Is the faulty printer online? Is the correct printer selected as the default printer? Can an applications software program other than the current program use the printer? Is the printer using the correct driver? Does the driver need updating? Is the driver correctly installed?
