Soyo K7ADA V1.0 motherboard with Ali MAGiK1 Chipset with USB on the chip itself.
Amd 2000+ processor
256mb ddr ram
Lexmark Z32 Printer
Don't think anything else is going to be of importance....
I'm running win xp pro. I just formatted and reinstalled windows and now it doesn't detect my printer. So to print now I have to get the laptop and make a temporary LAN. My laptop prints perfectly. I didn't need to install any drivers or anything (it also is running xp).
That leads me to believe that the problem lies in the driver for the USB port but I don't know why that would have a problem on a clean install. I have already tried searching for new hardware and it didn't find anything.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening and/or what I can do about it?
