Since NT doesn't do USB well, let's guess it's a Windows 2000 machine. Also since Windows 2000 is a Pro OS not used casually try the usual boot to safe mode, uninstall the printer per HP's notes (see hp.com) and then unplug that printer, unplug and proceed as if it's a new install.
Remember any recent changes such as firewalls since these can interfere with HP printers.
