Problem with XP usb port printing

By dennis.barnett ·
I have had problems with the XP usb port for printing. I have a lexmark x83 usb port printer,scanner,copier that from time to time will uninstall itself. One day it is installed and working and then the next the complete printer is dropped. And then the add printer process does not work. I wind up haveing to go thru the device manager to add the printer. Is there a good fix to this.

XP & Printers

I'll start with this: I am NOT IMPRESSED with Windows XP. Far too many compatability issues to be released as a primary OS on new units.
I have an HP970 CXI printer and although the printer is not dropped, queued print jobs hang in the que and will not print unless the CPU is rebooted. Contacted tech support and apparently this is a known issue with XP and HP printers. Looks like your Lexmark can join the list.

Congragulations you paid for the privlege of becoming a MS BETA tester. Don't install MS operating systems before SP2 is available, their reputation preceeds them.
