Try reinstalling the printers drivers.

My HP printer (software, more specifically) does a lot of random things including first when I installed it, I got random prompts that it was "continuing" the installation and they lasted for about 3 minutes and happened out of nowhere. I've also gotten similar notices but none lately. The only advice I have is to call HP and ask them.

Since it's HP... well... good luck with that.
