This happens when I plug in my digital camera, web cam, and a USB memory stick.
It's definitely the new HP printer that has disabled the USB ports from working, because all worked well before installing the printer - and I have disconnected the HP printer and uninstalled all it's software and now the other USB devices work normally.
I have looked on the HP web site but can't find any info about this. I tried unplugging the computer from the mains to reboot the motherboard, as I read some articles on the web that said this might reinstall the USB device drivers and fix the problem, but it had no effect.
So at the moment I have uninstalled the printer and my other USB devices work fine, but I have no printer! How can I get the photosmart printer to install without disabling my other USB ports? (I'm using windows XP SP3)
Thanks very much for any help
