USB printer
I have added hp printer deskjet 5850 to vista hame as a 5600 (as told
on hp website)
It printed. then I added a laserjet 2100 via a parallel to usb.
This works fine but the 5850 has stopped working. I tried plugging
into a different usb port which has just clogged up the port but not
got the printer working. help!

Re: USB printer
A guess might be that the 2100 install --
Walked on some HP "common" registry entries
Replaced one or more newer driver related modules that are common to both.

I'd try disconnecting the 5850, rebooting, uninstalling the 5850 drivers,
rebooting,
Check to see that the 2100 still works then
Reinstall the 5850 drivers. after the reinstall is complete, reconnect the
5850.

Then check again to insure that both printers work.

There is also a possibility that the parallel to USB adapter software mucked
something up.
When I encounter similar problems, one of the first steps is to disable
printer status monitoring.
The status monitors can get confused as to which printer they are to
monitor.
In some cases, uninstalling a printer driver does not do a good job of also
cleaning out the appropriate Registry entries.
This can require manual removal of the appropriate entries, unless there is
a "cleanup" utility available from the printer OEM.

Re: USB printer
Uninstall and disconnect both, go into Device Manager and uninstall the USB
Controllers. Reboot the PC.

Vista should re-find and reinstall the USB drivers.

Add the LaserJet first. Get that one printing, then see if you can install
the 5850. Technically you can't 'clog up' a USB port, provided it has
enough power. It can fail... and so can the cable.
