Problem with homegroup computer

Hello all,
Let me begin first by saying you guys have an awesome website and community and I hope to become a part of it

I come to you today with a problem, I have a homegroup setup at my house. It consists of my desktop and two laptops. My printer, which is attached to this desktop, is having trouble sharing to one of the laptops. The other one has no problem contacting it. I used the printer setup wizard and everything, its installed on the laptop, but when I print, nothing happen with the printer, then on the screen I get a message that says "1 document(s) pending for username", I right click it on select "open all active printers" and it says:
Untitled1 - Error printing
So I troubleshoot it. It says "A print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing. Fixed"

BUt when I try to print again I get the same problem? and it just continues in cycles from there. please jelp!

Hi Haunter44, welcome to sevenforums. It sounds like there is something wrong with the laptop that can't print. Check your settings for the homegroup. Here is a tutorial if you need it:- Homegroup - Add Computer or Join
Just checking, but, are your running the same OS on all 3 machines?
