    Completely uninstall your printer. Then use a simple, free registry cleaner such as RegCleaner by Juoni Viourno (available at to remove any vestiges of the old install. Reboot and reinstall the printer, being sure to wait to install the USB cable until the printer install software tells you to do so.
