Vista freezes after i connect usb printer

Hi guys,
i got a problem with my notebook Lenovo X300 with
Vista Business. Almost every time i connect a printer through USB Vista freezes and i have to do
hard restart. I have two different printers from different companies and both do that. I didn't install anything and it all started do itself.
Please help. Pete

It's possible your laptop is in a loop trying to find the correct printer drivers.

Vista contains a great number of device drivers but if your printers drivers aren't within this set then you will need the Printers Installation CD - or you could download the drivers from the printer manufacturers web site. Make sure it's the Vista driver you download.

Thx for advice, i'll try uninstall all drivers for both printers and download new, but i don't think it's going to help, because one printer is HP and second is canon and they both worked right till now.
