Check you printer's settings, and make sure it isn't printing draft or something. Also try removing the printer and adding it again.

If nothing works try reinstalling the operating system.

You've got to be joking. This isn't a Windows support hotline.

It seems you must clean the print head before trying to print again, those white lines in the middle of the circles say some nozzles may be clogged.

And it's printing in monochrome, no colour. May be you have selected black&white in printer preferences?
