USB won't detect printer
Posted on 2006-06-30
So I just bought this HP 5440 for a co-worker. I have never run into any problems intalling a printer before. I plug it in to the computer, and nothing happens, nothing is detected. I tried 2 printers (usb) and I have tried multiple cables. USB 001 doesn't even show up as an option under adding printers. I have just purchased a secondary pci usb card because I wasn't sure if it was just the connectors on the motherboard. Here is the setup:
Win2k, usb printing...
I was told to replace the usbmon and usb print drivers, restart, then attempt to lacate the printer. But still no luck. Anyone have any ideas?!?!?? I know its something to do with the computer, not the printer...just dont know what.
