This is general a result of died ink. Try the following

The vista directions you can follow with windows 7 as well.

If all of the above does not work you will need to buy a new ink cartage.(Do not refill)

Can't find ink levels for my HP Deskjet 5940


The installation disk for your printer has a setup wizard that monitors your ink levels in your printer. Go through the installation again as it will not hurt anything and you should find it on one of your pop up screens that it leads you to.

Nor printing


Go to http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00453087.pdf which is the HP online manual for this printer. Open it and go to page 92. Follow the recommended troubleshooting steps carefully.
Note: It is likely that the cartridge you installed is "dry". Or (and this one is no fun) the cartridge you purchased is not compatible with the 5940. Does the left-side panel of the wrapper carton have a listing of "5940" under the paragraph HP Deskjet ?

Also, if you purchased a store-refilled or store-recycled cartridge, it may not work. I had this happen once with a refill. Sorry, but you'll have to dispose of the recycled cartridge and purchase the reall HP deal.

My HP Printer Deskjet 3320 is not working with Windows Vista


You can follow Hp's Installing and Configuring an Alternate Driver in Windows Vista. Click this link provided by HP.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00808478&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=75035

Before you follow though with Hp's alternet driver site. Please run windows update for Vista un till no updates are left. If your printer still fails to run correctly than try HP's alternate drive.

Good luck & kind regaurds..
