Printer dead after XP re-install

After a hard disk failure, and a re-instalation of XP Pro on new hard disk, my HP deskjet 5940 plug and play printer doesn't work. It appears in several places in Device Manager, and all say "this deevice is working properly". I've tried but failed to update driver. Any suggestions?
My external USB har5d drive has vanished as well. It was working earlier after the re-install, but vanished when I was messing around with a partition manager. How might I get it back? Help!"

Download from HP website eventually fixed the printer.
