uninstall the printer driver from the root level
Open Programs and Features, Select your HP Printer from the list and Select Uninstall
Open Devices and printers, search for your HP printer from the list, right-click on it and choose `Delete’ or `Remove Device’
Press and hold together the “Windows key + R” key.
Type printui.exe /s in the command box and hit Enter (there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”)
Click on the “Drivers” tab, Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom, Select Ok, Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties window (copy – pasted from other answers but follow this steps)
download and install the driver for your printer. and connect the USB cable only when prompt by the installer

This usually occurs because the printer driver is damaged and it requires a reinstallation. Installing the latest driver will resolve the issue. however if the issue still persists than you can follow the steps mention in this link “No Printers Are Installed”
