If your using windows based computers, you can plug the computer into on usb port and make sure your computers are networked.  Set your printer driver for sharing on the computer it is plugged into.  Then go into the control panel of the other computer.  Select printers.  Select add a new printer.  Select search for printers.  If it is shared it will see it.  You select it and install the drivers.

It would depend on whether the computers are in the same room or not, If they are in the same room then all you have to do is use a USB Switch. hook the printer to it then connect both computers to the switch, just change the computer thats used on the switch as and when needed. If you are wanting to use 2 computers over a network then its an entirely different solution.

Step One:
First make sure your machine is set up for File and Print Sharing. Secondly, check to see if the printer you wish to use is set up for sharing also. If not, follow these directions.
1. Right click the printer to be shared.
2. Select Sharing on the menu
3. Name the Printer to be shared.
4. Click OK. A hand should appear under your printer.
Step Two:
Open your Printer Folder. Start/Settings/Printers.
Select Add Printer.

Step Three:
An Add Printer Wizard dialog box will appear, click on Next at the bottom.

Step Four:
• The dialog box will ask how the printer is attached to your computer.
• Select Network printer by clicking in the radio button.
• Click on Next at the bottom of the box.

Step Five:
The box will ask you for the path to the printer. Select browse. Your network neighborhood will open.

Find the name of the computer to which the printer is hooked up. Click on the name of the computer. Then click on the the printer name to highlight it . Click OK and Next

Step Six:
You can name the printer on this dialog box. Usually, the printer brand and room number is sufficient. The box will ask you if you want to print from a DOS program. The default is No. Click on Next at the bottom of the box.

Step Seven:
If you have already installed the printer before, it will ask if you want to keep the same drivers. If your machine is having problems printing from this printer, which is why you are reinstalling, then select Replace existing driver. Otherwise, you can select Keep existing driver.

Step Eight:
The dialog box asks if you wish to print a test page. Select Yes, and Finish.

Step Nine:
Another box will come up and ask if the page successfully printed. If so, select yes.
You will see your new printer in your Printer Folder with a line underneath it indicating that this is a network printer.

My computer doesn't recognize that my printer is hooked up every since I unplugged it and moved it.. I don't have the manual and I know that there is a certain order in which things are pluged in.

To avoid errors, install the HP PSC software before you connect the HP PSC to your computer. If an error message appears and you clicked Next or OK, do the following:
1 Press Esc on your keyboard to exit.
2 Turn off your HP PSC.
3 Disconnect the HP PSC from your computer (detach the USB cable).
4 Follow the software installation steps outlined in the Setup Poster that came with your HP PSC.

If you receive a message that you have a previously installed version, you will not be able to finish installing the HP PSC software. You will have to uninstall the previously installed version in order to install the HP PSC software.

If your computer is unable to communicate with your HP PSC
If communication cannot be established between your computer and HP PSC (for example, the HP PSC status icon has the yellow error triangle), try the same tasks outlined under If Microsoft’s New Hardware Found message does not appear on page 57 of the manual.

Here is a link to the manual for your printer...

Printer will not align

Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
