For tha particular error you are facing, here is the reason. These printers have a switch that triggers an interrupt when the toner door is closed. Usually there is an arm on the door that pushes the switch. It is quite sensitive and delicate. Then sometimes there is a tab on the printer's toner and if that breaks off then that error will be generated.
But in your case as you have not removed or inserted the toner, I think option 1 is applicable to you.
To use the printer with your computer, first you have to install the drivers and make power cable connection. HP LaserJet 1018 has USB connectivity. So, you have to connect it to the PC via USB Cable. HP LaserJet 1018 Drivers & User Guide Visit the above links from HP Official Support and download the Drivers for your Model of the printer and Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and user manual. Double-click the downloaded driver file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the printer. Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
