Oh I wish I could provide a fix, but I am relieved in a way to realize
I'm not alone in this, My laptop running Vista Home Premium was
purchased bundled with an HP Deskjet. Both are performing beautifully
BUT when I disconnect the laptop from the printer to take it on the
road and then reconnect upon return, HP wants to install drivers and
do the same thing. I now can print from Copy 1 but not the original
Long as I can get it to work, long as I know I'm still partially sane.
Perhaps someone will read our please and provide a fix or a lead to
where one could be found?
