Printer not recegnised on start up

  Distiller 21:05 02 Mar 2003

I have a Samsung ML4500 laser printer that is always found as new hardware on start up. I am running XP home on a Pentium4 1600 comp. with 512 Meg RAM. I have downloaded the latest druivers from the samsung site and uninstalled the printer and re-booted before re-installing. The printer works but some of the bells and whistles do not work (i.e. multi page printing)
Please would some of the expert help me get rid of these annoying messages.

Thanks in advance

I found this on the Samsung site. Does it help?

1. Re-install the printer driver.

2. From the 'New Hardware Detected' screen -> Next -> Next -> OK -> The option item displays 'Do not install this device' and 'Device not used' -> Select 'Device
-> not used' -> Click OK -> 'New Hardware Detected' message should no
longer appear during system boot-up.

3. Go to -> Start Setup -> Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager
Disk Drive Unselect the DMA item from the GENERIC IDE DISK TYPE01
configuration option Reboot the PC
