Look in your list of printers if the it is still listed delete it.
unplug your printer from the computer turn it off and restart the computer.
after it finishes loading windows plug in the printer it should automaticly install the printer or at least recognize it. it should have the driver built in. If not try now to run the driver from hp.
if it does not work make shure u down loaded the correct driver.
