Cannot Install

Deskjet F4210
Microsoft Windows XP

When I try to install this printer on my offline Compaq Presario SR 195ONX, the set-up is complete, but when I click "Print a test page" I receive an error message: HP Digital Imaging Toolbox has encountered a problem and needs to close.  If I try to print a Word document I receive an error message: Microsoft Office Word has encountered a problem and need to close.  This printer has worked well on another computer we have.  I have uninstalled and then reinstalled the printer with its installation CD and have followed the instructions at least 6 times on the Presario and it will not print.  Another printer used to work on the Presario.  I don't know what to do next.  I'd appreciate suggestions.  Thank you.

Thank you for responding!  I am excited to try this, but before I start, I just want to verify that I can do all this offline (this computer has never been online) and with my Windows XP operating system.  Thank you.
