I have had an ongoing problem with a new Lexmark x5470 printer I purchased a few months ago. When I have it installed and operating, it will be fine until the next bootup, when it will freeze during the boot for about 10 minutes. Then it will boot up and everything will run normally. I have actually paid to have this computer wiped and reformatted, which I never do.. only to find out when the guy brought the computer back.. that the printer was the issue. He had no ideas.. so I researched this until I am blue in the face and it could be one of two things that I can see:
1. The usb isn't connected to a 2.0 port. I bought a 2.0 USB hub to try to rectify the problem, but with approx 6 USB ports, it's hard to decide which one is the 2.0 enhanced. It could be that all of them are, but control panel only shows one and the others as 1.1.
2. The problem could be, I've read, that the system is booting up with the drivers and supposedly I can fix that in sysedit, but I don't know how.
I really can't afford a new printer. Can anyone help me?
