Hi, I am having major problems trying to get ANY printer to work on my pc. I run Windows XP and just as of recently my canon s100 printer was working fine, but then it just stopped working. I tried reinstalling the drivers but still the same problem, it just did'nt seem to be communicating with the pc. I suspected the hardware might be at fault but after trying another lexmark all in one printer the same problem happened. I have tried everything I can think of and find this really frustrating. Both printers are connected via USB if that helps.
Try and connect another usb device(mouse,camera etc) in the same port. A nil respose will indicate that the USB port is faulty. Get a PCI to USB card around (?10) install it then connect your printer to this card.
