Re: ip4200: Vista Home Basic Fails, but Home premium works
no - it wouldnt let me manually point to old drivers to install, it
would say the present ones are most up-to-date.
Since it is a new computer install, (not much to redo) i just started
over with reinstalling vista clean. After vista only, the printer
worked fine using vistas drivers.
THen after installing the motherboard drivers and vga drivers, etc,
then openoffice, it went back to the same problem. Now i can plug it in
and it doesnt even show a popup that a USB device has connected.
Printer still works fine on the laptop. And at least USB mouse works
fine on the desktop.
SO i will start fresh again, do a step by step trial, and see what is
causing the conflict. (i updated the motherboard bios by the way and it
made no difference.)
Long story short = its not vista its my new motherboard setup
thanks for trying to help.
