Welcome to Fixya,

I hope you elaborate more, what you did in installing the printer, so I can advice directly in your problem,

but any, I have some guidelines in troubleshooting a printer and hoping that this can help you in determining the problem.

  • if is connected to USB see if Operating System problem,
  1. if your using XP or Vista and your system cannot recognize it, then OS is not Updated or Modified, I encounter some of XP and Vista OS.
  2. what your going to do is activated your auto update, in the internet, so the Microsoft will automatic update your system. after a multiple updates, your system can now recognize any new doing this: in your control panel, double click security center, ON the automatic updates or you can use the link below fo direct download:

and SP3 updates:

If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

HP Office Jet 4630 E-All in One. Installing to print from 2 computers via wireless network. Wont print from 2nd computer.

It's some kind of communication error. I would suggest uninstalling the printer from the second computer. Also, make sure you go to the website for that printer and download the latest driver that was designed for Vista 32bit. If you are using the included software disc it may not have the latest driver updated that fixes this problem.
