A printer driver is software that knows your printer capabilities and allows setting changes for print jobs. It's important to keep printer driver up-to-date to make sure the printer can work properly. Of course it's not all about driver when the printer stops working sometimes. So, before updating printer driver, follow these steps below until the issue is addressed.

1. Make sure that the printer is powered on, has ink / toner, and that there are no alerts on the printer's control panel. 
2. Ensure the printer is properly connected to a USB port of your Windows computer according to the manufacturer's instructions. If the printer is a network-capable printer, make sure that it is properly connected to your home network.
3. Make sure the printer is connected to a working power outlet by verifying each end of the power cable.
4. Make sure you did press the printer power button. Believe me, it may be the solution of your problem sometimes.
5. Make sure the power and data cables (parallel cable or USB cable) are connected to both the printer and computer.
