USB printer



I have added hp printer deskjet 5850 to vista hame as a 5600 (as told
on hp website)
It printed. then I added a laserjet 2100 via a parallel to usb.
This works fine but the 5850 has stopped working. I tried plugging
into a different usb port which has just clogged up the port but not
got the printer working. help!

Uninstall and disconnect both, go into Device Manager and uninstall the USB
Controllers. Reboot the PC.

Vista should re-find and reinstall the USB drivers.

Add the LaserJet first. Get that one printing, then see if you can install
the 5850. Technically you can't 'clog up' a USB port, provided it has
enough power. It can fail... and so can the cable.
