HP3845 Printer will not work in Vista

My Dell Spiron 5100 lnspiron running Windows XP was using an HP 3845 printer for almost a year. Then it ran into problems and I replaced the computer with an emachine T3604 which was only available with Vista. The HP site advised me a driver was already installed in Vista but I have never been able to get it to work. After running the HP Diagnostic and re-starting the computer I can print perhaps one document, then the green light on the HP button starts flashing and it no longer prints.

    I have the same problem with a model 3642. I have been in touch with HP & emachine on-line who both have lots of suggestions but nothing works.
