    It sounds like you are using a parallel port setup; are you sure you are using the drivers for parallel and not usb? If you have the correct dirvers installed try using the Install Printer Wizard and when prompted choose 'Have Disk' - navigate to C:\Program Files \ HP 'your printer' and install manually by choosing the folder with the proper drivers.
