This can happen if you installed the manufacturers printer drivers before plugging in the printer and XP already had the drivers available. If this has happened, you can try to uninstall the drivers/printer software and then delete the printer from the printer list. Restart the PC and Windows will find the new printer and use it's own driver. After this is done, if you have a newer one available, you can do a driver update.
Can someone tell me why Win XP show up several times" a new hardware (printer) found, despites i have my printer installed and running?
Thankx for any info.
