In our office, a colleague obviously has a problem with their Chrome installation (15.0.847.106m). The print dialog does not show any preview, and it doesn't show the printers as well.

Other browsers like Firefox do show the printers.

In OS X, I know that the "old style" system print dialog can be triggered with ⌥⌘P. Is there an equivalent for Windows? Where else should I look?

You can use the system shortcut (in Windows or GNU/Linux) Ctrl-Shift-P to see the system dialog for printing as you desired, or you can disable Chrome's print preview alltogether if you type about:flags in the URL bar, scroll a little bit down, and disable Print Preview and then restart Google Chrome.

Disabling print preview altogether fixed it for him, thanks! – slhck Nov 10 '11 at 12:07
