One night my USB printer worked, the next moring it did not.
Abit KT7A, 2 onboard USBs, 2 extra USBs. 1.4 GHz AMD Athlon. Windows 98. 512 MB Ram.
Printer is USB printer. I also have Palm desktop, will not backup my palm anymore through USB. USB joystick is not recongnized anymore. I can see the usb ports in windows, but cannot recognize my printer at the ports. I tried to reinstall drivers, uninstall drivers, change motherboard settings, etc. It all seems silly, since it worked fine one day, and then just didn't work.
Anyone have some ideas on what I can try?
Please, I need help.
I have tried both of your suggestions. 1. I uninstalled all of my USB drivers, and the system detected the ports after a couple minutes and reinstalled the drivers. 2. I have checked my CMOS and USB is enabled. I tried both enabling/disabling in the BIOS, wondering if the OS was trying to drive them instead of the BIOS...
I have tried everything I can think of. Thanks for the suggestions. Do you have anything else I could try? (Upgrade to XP? :\ )
