Printer will not print on Server 2008 but will on Windows 10


I know Windows Server 2008 is a little old, but it works for what I am using it for! I am trying to install this printer on the server and it will install the drivers and software just fine, but when I click print it says it is printing but will not do anything, there is not any response on the printer.

I did the same thing on a Windows 10 computer and it all worked first shot, the only difference was I was using wireless rather than USB. I have tried using USB and Ethernet on the Server computer and both end with the same results.

I have contacted HP but they will not help due to the Operating System. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, getting the IP and manually adding it to the printer in the Printers section, and also uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, updated the driver with all the same results.

Any help would be much appreciated!
