The HP site for that printer has two Vista Drivers (32-bit and 64-bit).

Did you select the correct driver for your machine? ... Thinkpads_User

Sounds like a permission issue. Run subinacl

Install subinacl -download the reset.cmd script and run it. Reboot the computer. Try installing the HP software your issue will be resolved.
