This inks system failure error 0x... might be due to some issues with your ink cartridge or the printheads. I have an old officejet printer running on windows xp which encountered the same ink system failure issues and has cost me a lot of money for new cartridges. I got the issue straighten out by doing a hardware reset on the printer itself, I did it on the printer's panel. I followed the steps found on hardware reset article online. Why not give it a try before thinking of another solution..
