That is because you did not install drivers.

You need to download and install drivers before connecting the printer.

you can download drivers from HP Software, Drivers Support.

Since Hp have Vista driver to your printer...to install the driver...do not plug the printer...install the driver that you downloaded (run the program as Administrator)..after you install, if the installation ask for restart..restart your computer...after restart and the whole system finish his task on loading driver and dll ..then plug in your printer...it will pop up message found new hardware. click next and choose automatic find the driver.

what Cable are you using to connect?

Try connecting the printer to your old machine again, if it works it sure that nothing is wrong with printer.

You should check your laptop USB connection for electric leakage. use a multi-tester or something like that. Sometimes electric leakage will cause damage to the USB devices.
