This will not cost You all you have to do is search the internet for your driver for Windows vista The best Place to do this would be the HP website do a google search for your model number .. you will get the drivers

Sounds like the working cartridges are badly clogged. Is the new cartridge HP brand or an "internet special"? Try HP originals and see if the machine still works ( I imagine it will). If not, then yes the machine is probably and the end of its life.
you need to install the 64 bit version of the drivers. Try browsing your cd and look for 64-bit drivers. If not you will find the drivers in the site , here is a link to the 64 bit version of the vista drivers, download the driver that suits your printing needs (PCL or postscript, depends on fonts, I would go for PCL if your don't know)
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? USB a and b? parallel port to USB? if this you need to download the driver too.
make sure that your printer is shared in the network. you can uninstall the previous cd driver from the add/remove programs then reinstall again.. make sure to reboot your computer after fresh install is done
