HP7960 printer prevents computer from booting

I just installed the software for an HP7960 injet printer and discovered that the computer will no longer boot if the USB lead is attached to the printer.
I boot from a SCSI drive and it appears that ther is a conflict such that the SCSI BIOS is not loaded at boot and the system finally looks to the CD ROM for a system disk but doesn't find one. If I boot with the cable disconnected and then connect the printer everything works ok. It also doesn't matter whether the printer is switched on or not, as long as it is connected then the computer will not boot.
