It appears the only thing you didn't try was switching USB cables. (I am
assuming you tried all the USB ports on the laptop). Yes, cables
occassionally fail. I'd do the following:

1. Connect the printer to the notebook with another USB cable that you know
works. If the printer works, the problem is with the cable; if the printer
still doesn't work, the problem is with the printer or the PC.

2. Take your printer and an USB cable you know works to a friend's computer.
Connect the printer to the PC and power up the printer. If the friend's
computer doesn't recognize the printer either, then you've a malfunctioning
printer; if it does work, you know there's something wrong with your PC's

Good luck.
