Error message "Paper Out" when trying to print

7FU46UA#ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I try to print with my HP Laptop, I get the message "Paper Out".  I have an HP Envy 5660 printer that works perfectly with my MacBook and also worked with my old Microsoft Surface.  I have not been able to print from my HP Laptop since I bought it.
