Printer WON'T Print in XP

My Canon 4150 4-in-1 won't print. I use XP Pro SP3.

The drivers are installed from the original CANON CD driver disk.

The printer connects to the PC via a USB cable.

DEVICE MANAGER shows a yellow question mark under "USB Printing Support".

This same printer worked fine with an Asrock mobo-this is a DFI Lan Party mobo, just installed.

Is the problem port assignment or another configuration issue, or

a cold USB port,

or should the port choice be a COM port or a LPT1 port?

Thank you gents and ladies.

  1. Start>Settings>Control Panel>Printers & Faxes

    Right-click your printer, select Properties, then the Ports tab.

    Check "USB 001 Virtual Printer Port for USB Canon 4150"

    Click the checkbox for "Enable bidirectional Printing"

    The checkbox for "Enable Printer Spooling" should be unchecked

    Click Apply, click OK.

    Click the General tab.

    Click "Print test page"

  2. Tried all of that and the settings were set that way already. Upon trying ti print a test page, I get a BSOD with the following:

    BAD_POOL_HEADER

    Stop: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x89AE8E78, 0x89AE8ED0, 0x0A0B0008.

    Could that mean a driver problem?

    Or a problem when I installed the drivers from the mobo CD?

    Thank you.

  4. Start up in safe mode and uninstall the printer. Have printer unplugged from computer, re-start normal and see if the problem goes away.

    If it does, re-install printer drivers and look again.
