I have an XP-Pro desktop computer to which an HP Laserjet 3030 is connected. The XP-Pro machine has 2 users, one being member of Admin group and other a restricted user.
2 other laptop computers on my home network, all XP pro have the same user settings and connect to this printer which is shared.
Now some days back I had a motherboard failure and had to change the motherboard. I put an Intel DG41TY. Unfortunately the Intel install DVD was scratched by my computer person and would not be read. I downloaded the drivers for Chipset, Graphics, LAN and audio and installed them. Everything went well. I did not even have to activate my license again.
I have a External Maxtor USB connected for backup to the desktop and this installed without any problem. But the HP Laserjet 3030 is just not getting detected. I uninstalled the software and the printer. But when I plugin the USB cable, nothing happens. I changed the cable but same effect. I connected the printer to my laptop and it was immediately detected.
I think there is some problem of old driver still being there.
Can someone help me out. If more details are needed I can give.
There was a problem of "USB device not recognised" flashing now and then on the desktop. I think I have solved that by removing everything under USB Controllers and a number of things under System Devices and installing again. But that did not help in the printer problem.

Have you tried your HP printer on the same physical USB port that you used successfully for your HDD ?
