Make sure that java, direct X, and .NET components are up to date. Many installers not require these.
If the install just can't see the printer, I would completely uninstall any components you were able to get installed (if any), remove the device entirely from your system, download a Vista version of the driver from HP if possible, and run the setup.exe...If your using a system driver you'll have to hook the printer up first, otherwise when it asks you to attach the printer then hook it up in a different USB port.
If all else fails install the drive manually through the control panel using Add Harware and then browse for the INF file.

I just got off the HP help line. After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on. This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink. I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty. It turns out that you cant do it. HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings. And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer. The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.

"The print cartridge cradle cannot move."
I fixed this problem by disconnecting the power cord from the power-strip and connecting it directly into the wall. My printer was not getting enough voltage from the power-strip. I hope this helps.

Did you just replace a cartridge? In any event, see this HP support article and follow the instructions. You may need to clean the cartridge and printer contacts for the cartridge to work correctly. Do this while the printer is turned off. Wait until the contacts are both thoroughly dry, then reinstall the cartridges with the printer on. (See here.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.
And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who has had this problem without a solution. I found that by moving the print cartridge (with the power on) all the way to the left, closing the door, powering it off, then powering it back on, then doing the test print (cancel and color start copy key), it would print. Had to do this 2-3 times. Then tried printing a document and it printed. So far, it 'appears' to be working OK. Hope it keeps working, otherwise I will just have to get another printer...
