If you're on XP, download HP Deskjet Basic Feature Software/Driver and then install this software.

Next, go to the "Printers and Faxes" part of the XP control panel and add the printer. Unless the printer has its own server (very unlikely for home use), then even if it is installed on a wired or wireless network, you need to add it as a local printer (again this should be done even if you have it connected to your local network), then add the printer. You may need to add a new port for the networked printer.

I hope this helps.

This looks like either you do not have correct drivers, or that the drivers didn't install or didn't install properly Double check that you have the proper drivers. If you do, try reinstalling them.

Is the printer software installed on the laptops? Are you trying to print from the laptop itself, or a phone or tablet?
Sounds like from what you said the devices are on the network, but they still need the correct software to communicate with each other.

Try to use a smartphone and install the HP mobile printing app, if that app is able to find your printer, it is indeed on the network correctly.

If you can print from the phone/tablet, but not the laptops, you need to install the software drivers for your printer to your laptop(s) you wish to print from.

Here is a link to the Windows Drivers

Have you check the control panel to verify that the printer is installed and if so do you have a wireless printer.
