you have plugged the USB/ paralell cable from the printer to the computer, AND the power supply is connected to the wall outlet with the end connector plugged into the printer, AND the printer is powered ON?

did you also install the printer drivers or is it that the drivers will not install?

can you tell me the error message you are getting? it could mean that the operating system is corrupt. that would mean you would have to restore winXP after backing up your data.

i am totally clueless. it doesn't sound like an operating system error and reinstalling may do nothing. contact HP through their website or phone to get some answers
