Everytime I switch on my desktop running and start the HP PSC 1410, it will print a test page. I have recently installed the hplip driver (the latest one on the hplip website) and the driver installed correctly.

I dont know what pp-build=no is, but it was mentioned somewhere that it should be =yes. please suggest what to do to stop this test page printing everytime. I have tried putting the test page on scanner and scanned a couple of times to align the cartridges but that won't work.

Apparently this is not specific to Ubuntu.

It seems that page will keep printing until you complete the alignment test. It seems to be an involved procedure. See this example: http://www.fixya.com/support/t141507-hp_psc_1410v

I would suggest carefully reading the printer documentation, perhaps call/contact HP to get assistance.
