  lakeman 14:46 14 Nov 2009

i posted yest about device manager list disappearing , also my printer wont instal and says its in the wrong port"Lpti" when its a usb printer, tried SCANNOW/SFC and it didnt report any problems , i also tried to see if any registry issues were the problem, in permissions for enum the only difference i saw was instead of seeing "everyone and system" i saw "the name of my pc" and interactive" i didnt make any changes here( to scared). pc is running ok altho slower and the prob with the printer remains, hope im not rambling, any help would be appreciated

Why post again - stick to the same thread. I already suggested the Plug & Play option on your other thread so as you see you may well get the same advice as before - which is a waste of time for you and also for those trying to help;

yes i have checked with services.msc and plug and play is enabled, tried installing software for my printer and it implies that my usb cable isnt connected and i should set it to network printer
