Hi kalp123 - It sounds like you've got the printer connected to two different machines. That means you need drivers for whatever operating system is on each machine. Below is the link for the drivers for XP. Choose the first driver listed under drivers when you scroll down the page. Let me know if it works out. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DON'T RATE IT YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks,

I installed hp lajerjet 3050 on windows xp 32 bit...and on another laptop having windows 7 64 bit operating system. when i am trying to share the printer on windows 7 64 shows drivers not found.

Same Driver will not work for win7 64 bit even if you share the printer it needs the driver for win7 64.
You will have to download the driver for win7 64bit and install in that system.

You probably need to update the drivers for Vista and/or XP to work with this printer. Select the operating system you have and download the drivers.

HP Vista (32-bit) drivers and downloads

HP Vista (64-bit) drivers and downloads

HP XP (standard) drivers and downloads

HP XP (64-bit) drivers and downloads
