The only way is to do a compete reinstall of the OS. If you have your grey install dvd that came with your Mac ( presuming you have had Leopard installed on it when you got it) then shove them in and do a install like you did SL.
It also helps if you post your Machine Specs as well so we don't presume anything
If you haven't got the disks anymore you can ring  and maybe just maybe they will have some spare disks somewhere or you go on ebay and pay a premium price for them $100+ is what you will be looking at.
Are you sure there are no drivers for your HP ?? I would take a look but om out the door to work.
Good luck and I'm sure someone else will chime in where i left off

Might give vuescan a try first. Free to try.
EDIT: I meant before re installing the OS. Didn't see Dennis' potential solution until I had posted.

VueScan Scanner Software for Windows 7, Mac OS X Lion, Linux, iPhone, iPad, iPod

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
