Canon BJC 2110 errors

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Hello all. First time here and this problem is really getting on my
nerves.

Thursday, my printer was fine. Today, it's not working

It's a Canon BJC 2110, connected via USB.

Here's what happened from Fri - Today

SAT: Disconnected PC to take to a LAN party
SUN: Brought back PC, reseated mobo, reconnected
SUN: When I booted the PC, the CMOS had to go back to default settings
(don't know why, it just failed to boot). Since I didn't change much
originally (just time, date, and boot order), I fixed those and went to
Windows.
SUN nt: Installed an MMORPG

TODAY: I went to print out a resume and nothing happens. The printer
itself is fine AFAI can tell (power works, it's in the home position,
cables are all snug and in correct positions). I looked through CMOS to
see if I could change any settings for a USB printer, but I didn't see
anything to be aware of. I deleted the printer under the PRINTER AND
FAXES, unhooked it (via hotswapping), rehooked it, WinXP found it and
installed the drivers, and it STILL doesn't work.

What appears to be happening is that the data gets stuck in
transmission. For example, when I click PRINT, the data gets sent, but
then it just freezes (so about half of the file gets sent). It's only a
resume, very small file and was working fine Thursday.

I can't uninstall the drivers AFAIK. No option for it that I can see
under WinXP (not SP1 or SP2 BTW). The latest drivers are already on the
WinXP CD (the last one was made in 2001).

    Uninstall and reinstall correctly.

    After Step 5, use the Add Printer Wizard to install and do not connect until
    XP tells you to do so.
