Thumbs down Printer refuses to print - pls help!!!

Ever since I got my computer fixed (the hard drive had to be erased and re-formatted) my printer won't work. I installed the latest drivers, but that doesn't do anything. When I try to print something, a message appears saying something like, "There was an error writing to LPT1: for the printer (Canon BJC-1000SP: Cannot access the port. It may be in use by another program. Quit other programs and try printing again." I close the other programs, but it's still the same. This has happened before. I know there's nothing wrong with the printer, because it was working fine before my computer got fixed. Please help me!
