My system will not maintain the USB printer support drivers. I have a Compaq :( 7478 and have had this trouble with my USB devices since I've had the machine, but especially since I installed XP. I dont know if it has something to do with digitally signed drivers or not. Just installed a scanner (thanks Santa) have I have to delete the USB hub and unknown devices and reinstall the hardware every time I restart the machine. Does anyone have a solution or suggestion (aside from trashing the compaq)?

Besides the obvious (trashing the compaq), I suggest running the guantlet with your machine: bios, 4in1's, windows updates, and the very latest drivers pertaining to your trouble devices. Check out this article too:

USB has been a real pain for a lot of folks. Just keep looking for updated drivers and be sure you look in your bios to make sure you've assigned it (usb) an irq, etc. Good luck.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
