Very often a simple reboot of your laptop will sort this as long as the printer is switched on of course. Re booting may force the laptop to recognize the printer. Otherwise it is worth going into control panel>devices and printers and check it out there.

It will show off line if all your connections are not in place.
Try checking all the cables.

Should have added if you are using a usb cable make sure that that is shown on manager.

Sounds like a compatibility issue between win 7, xp and the printer.
Sorry it needs somebody who knows about these things to chip in and help you out.
Have you looked here?
