I have an HP printer, not the same model as yours. Usually with a brand the software is generally the same for the various models so I'm offering this.
Hopefully this will work for you.
From Start menu, go to Control Panel.
Open up Printers and Faxes. RIGHT CLICK on your HP icon.
Click on Printing Preferences to open preferences.
Next click on Features tab; at the bottom choose Printer Services.
When it opens, click Estimated Ink Levels or something similar.
Another method which may work for you and easier than going to Control Panel:
In your start menu, do you see HP Solution Center?
If so, open it up. Click Settings, then Status.
If there are a couple of icons in the box that opens, click on the one for estimated ink levels.
If you don't have Solution Center in Start menu you may have a folder called HP. The Solution Center should be listed within that folders.
Opening up the Toolbox as described above will also allow you to clean the print cartridge, align the page, and print a test page.
