No computer of mine recognizes this printer and the left drip light keeps blinking even though i have repalced it

If by referring to the left drip light you mean the bottom left light; this is the indicator light for the color ink cartridge:
Left print cartridge light blinks, Power light on. Tri-color print cartridge is damaged or missing.
? Reinstall the print cartridge. If the error persists, replace the print cartridge.

? You can still print with one cartridge

it is possible that once the computer and printer are communicating that the error messages could also be resolved by running the printer diagnostic program.

If your computers do not recognize the printer, uninstall the driver, if you had installed a specific driver, and then go to the site below to download a driver for your operating system and specific printer: After installing the operating system specific driver the computer should recognize the printer. Trust this is helpful. :)

Can't install old printer on newer computer

The appropriate printer drivers are bundled with XP. With the printer connected to the computer and powered on, the system should automatically recognize the printer and install the correct drivers if it is connected via USB. If it is connected to the parallel port, go to Control Panel -> Printers, select Add New Printer and follow the on-screen prompts.

HP 845C

Try turning the printer on while it is connected and see if the computer recognizes it. Once it does it will prompt you for the driver. Now you should be able to install the driver.
