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 can use either USB or network connections. Easiest would be USB. It should automatically install the drivers but you can download an hp driver direct from hp.com

My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image


You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.

Trying to connect a printer to my new Gateway computer


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)

My HP Deskjet 5550 suddenly doesn't come on at all


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.
