The OS will recognize other USB devices, but it will not recognize printers (tried various printers). I have re-installed the drivers, XP Service Pack 2, to no avail. My next step is to reinstall XP, but this is a last resort.
A couple of weeks ago, I installed a Lexmark x8350 printer (USB) on my Dell computer (running ME). It worked fine until yesterday. When I went to print a document, my computer no longer recognized the printer. I uninstalled the printer and now I can re-install it because it doesn't know it's there. Cables are O.K. (I purchased new ones this a.m.). In Device Manager, under USB, no printer USB is listed.
Any help fixing this problem would be most appreciated.
