Andy: I have yet to find a HP printer that wont work on win8 or 8.1
A few struggle but they have work arounds
You dont tell us what model it is , the general rule is
Go to Hp's web site and download the drivers for your model
Select the printer you have : eg HP Deskjet F2280
then the operating system = win 8 64 or 32 bit
then follow the instructions on how to install them
hope to see you back here with the good news
