I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

To use the printer with your computer, first you have to install the drivers and make power cable connection. HP LaserJet 1018 has USB connectivity. So, you have to connect it to the PC via USB Cable. HP LaserJet 1018 Drivers & User Guide Visit the above links from HP Official Support and download the Drivers for your Model of the printer and Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and user manual. Double-click the downloaded driver file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the printer. Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

I bought a new computer with windows 7. The disk for my hp laserjet 1018 does not work on windows7. I have downloaded the driver from the hp site and it downloaded fine. I opened the download and it asked that I plug the printer in the usb port. Then it said " device is connected, waiting for PnP to finish installing driver... This was shown for over half an hour but nothing happened. What can I do now?
Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:
Driver : HP Mobile Printing Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect Access
Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba) Host : ip address of you
printer user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no
use) port : 9100 Printer Model: Officejet Printers
You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.
first of all remove the power cable and rmove the usb connection or parallal connection from the pc. Then conneted the power and usb cable. you need to open the case to remove the printer cartise. and add the cartise. Start your pc. give print command.
Yes it is a print driver problem, Unplug usb, delete all previous attemps at install, delete print software and drivers, Download and install correct driver from HP, plug in usb only when directed to do so.
