Thanks. Here's the procedure to try, for the drivers for the printer for Windows XP:
First, disconnect the printer, turn it off and unplug it from both power and computer. Leave it that way throughout the following, until you are instructed to connect it up again by the installation software routine (or, at least, by that routine having completely ended and finished and exited etc.)
So: turn off, unplug, unplug your printer.
Go to your computer, to the Start button, then to Control Panel - Devices and Printers, and remove all entries for your HP printer and its series, by clicking on each of its icons (or entries) and deleting.
Then go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, and use Uninstall (or Remove or Change/Remove) to get rid of all programs specific to your HP printer.
Then, reboot your computer: shut it down and start it up again.
Then, go to
and click once on the red Download button and then download the proper driver for your printer.
Save it to disk, then double-click on the downloaded file, and do the driver installation.
