Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Your new laptop is almost certainly running and newer version of Windows than the old one and most manufacturers don't update their drivers for older equipment when new Windows Operating systems come along.

Havre a look at this HP website page - it may lead you to a new driver but if it doesn't you need a new printer.
