I would remove the printer (if it is there) and then delete the printer driver (if it is there) from Printer Server Properties, Drivers tab.

Restart the computer and then see if HP has a Windows 8.1 driver for that machine. I have my Windows 8.1 laptop with a couple of HP 600 - 602 printers and they work fine. You probably just need a newer driver.

Have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the Windows 8.1 driver but experiencing the same issue. Other computers with the same build and OS works fine, only this particular laptop having this problem.

Your screenshot shows that the setup is crashing. I don't think you need to use that setup, you could as well feed the printer setup wizard an .inf-file. Get it extracted from the driver download. Do you know how to do that?

I'm afraid I don't know how to extract the .inf files from setup. A guide is appreciated.

This should be your download (HP unidriver 5.9, x64, english): http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=5096263&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Didx%253D%257CswItem%253Dds_99374_9%257CswEnvOID%253D4158%257CitemLocale%253D%257CswLang%253D8%257Cmode%253D%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken 
Download it and use 7-zip (a freeware zip program, http://www.7-zip.org/ ) to extract everything right from that downloaded file to some folder that you like. Now use the printer installation wizard and point it to that folder and there you go.

Other computers with the same build and OS works fine, <-- New information.

Try System File Checker:  Open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, run a second time, restart and Test again.

If that fails, you may need to run a Windows 8 /8.1 Refresh. Do this from Action Center, Recovery options. Your data will be protected but you will have to re-install some software.

"The download is .exe file" - I know. Please do as suggested and unzip it using 7zip, 7zip can do it. If you prefer not to do this, as I can see, it is an self-extracting executable, on launch it will ask to extract to a folder of your liking.

The problem is solved. The USB cable only works with one USB port and doesn't detect other USB ports. However, the USB mouse works with all the ports. Kind of bizzare.

Anyway, I will award the points for assistance and I learned a few things. Thank you Hurst and McKnife.
