USB host controller cannot find enough free resources it can use ( code 12)

My brothers's Canon Pixma i1800 printer stopped working. Uninstalling and reinstalling failed to help.

I checked the device manager and find that the Standard OpenHCD USB host controller reports

"the device cannot find enough free resources it can use code 12".

the display adaptor GeForce Go6150 is reporting the same problem.

How can I fix this problem, and what is causing it?

You may need to manually assign the USB resources from within Device Manager.

Either it's an IRQ problem or an IO problem.

We have this a lot on certain Dell laptops - because they weren't designed for Vista or XP, only Windows 2000.  Resources become a bit of an issue at times.

Figure out where you can assign it resources that are available and set them manually.

Open the properties of the device with the exclamation point on it in device manager.
On the Resources tab you can uncheck the box for use automatic settings the select the Change settings button.

Assign it an IRQ and IO that isn't in conflict.  Use caution with the IO - you need to figure out what it wants to use on a machine running a downlevel OS that doesn't have the issue.
