Hi.

 

It is Brother fx2280 - when PC starts -  USB printer would not work,

When unplugged - replugged  it works OK until next PC shut down.

I did try different USB ports - same behavior.

 

PC is running XP Pro   "SellectiveSuspendEnabled"  entry under Device Parameters

Does NOT exists in Registry

 

There is no SP2 installed - would it matter ? 

Also tried reinstall with newest drivers from Brother.

 

TIA

No camera, just a standard stuff : another printer, mouse, keyboard etc.

 

No problems with them, just this one printer.

It is setup as a default.

 

When booting up - nothing happens (no beeps, no new hardware found etc.)

 

In printers CP its shown as a default - checking properties shows as not connected.

 

Disconnect and re-connect - bingo - its ready. Beeps - new hardware found -ready.

Appears that's the only way to get it going.  Brother is no help - problems with Windows.

 

Tryied different USB ports, cables - nada.

Thank you Louis for links but:

 

As I mentioned in my opening post - "SelectiveSuspense" entry does not exist in my Registry

hence I cannot disable or delete it. That was the first thing I was looking for per M$ instructions.

Unfortunately M$ does not cover that scenario.
