    Dear Friend!!
    You just once uninstall the drivers for printers from all the ports and then re-install the CD provided when you bought the printer.
    This will solve the problem.
    And try to install the drivers from internet connection when asked to install via internet connection during you run the CD.

    You need to check a few points to solve the issue.

    1. check the cable and connector of the printer, reinsert them once you are sure about their status.
    2. you need to uninstall the previous installation of printer driver which were there in Windows , or if you have installed the supplied printer driver by the HP.
    3. reinstall the printer driver to Windows through Windows, the process is:
    start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager>printer>update driver or attach the printer through USB port and the driver will autodetect the printer.
    you can insert the CD provided along the printer and install driver from that too by running setup.exe/install.exe file there.

    Dear friend,

    The driver for your printer in Windows 7 is corrupted, which is causing problem. Sometime when you are
    installing a new device, such as printer, the window operating system install driver from its on database.
    These drivers may cause conflicts with the printers own drivers. If you install driver after connecting the
    printer, this happens most likely. Uninstalling the driver may not solve the problem.

    To solve your problem, you should restore your system to an earlier point before the problem aroused.
    After restoring your system, you install a driver that comes with the printer, and then connect the printer
    after completion of installation. You can restart your computer after installation of driver, if the
    problem persists.

    try to uninstall the drivers which are given to along with the printer.
    remove all the cables connected to your system and printer.
    switch off your printer.
    Now restart your system also.

    first thing you need to do is switch on the printer.
    connect the printer cable to your system.
    check whether you get any notification like new USB notifications...
    click on the notification and allow to install the drivers from internet.
    wait for some time because windows will search for the appropriate drivers to your hardware.
    once all the drivers are installed go to device manger and check is there any yellow color icon in the list..
    if you still find any yellow icon, right click on it and click update and choose internet.

    finally restart your system...
    happy printing
