Bought a new computer Advent T100 with 1024gb ram,win xp home edtion sp2. After installing my Lexmark P4350 All in One it hangs the computer at bootup(Just gets to the Advent splash screen and freezes),although booting with it not connected then hot plugging it is recognized and works as it should. Installed as per Lexmark instructions,disabling antivirus(Norton) etc and cancelling out of the standard windows wizard as required by the Lexmark install. The usb ports are working fine and the computer boots with other external devices connected (to test) Tried other usb leads and different ports,updated to the latest new driver. The Lexmark works alright on the old computer(XP) Have even installed following the Windows wizard and pointing the installation to the cd drive. As before freeze on boot but works hot plugging.
Unfortunately the computer is of the type with everything in a module behind the monitor,small like a laptop there are 3 usb ports (would assume they are pci) and wouldnt like to open the back up to find the motherboard plus the usual firewire,modem and 1 ethernet port,and two usb ports in the side of the monitor,have tried all these usb ports with an install on each removing the printer drivers and software each time,thought about disabling the printer in msconfig(startup) but it probably would not work as the boot sequence only gets to the Advent screen and hangs. There are no conflicts in device manager either. Shows the usual HID,USB controllers and mass storage drives for the card reader etc. The printer installs and works ok when hot plugged.
