I recently moved my computer to a new location, and now my printer and other components I plug into the usb ports aren't recognized. My keyboard is plugged into a usb port and when I move it to any of the other ports, it works, so I know the usb port are functional.

I have uninstalled and re-installed the printer about 3 times now! Our Ipods aren't recognized, my camera isn't recognized, and most importantly, my printer isn't recognized. The printer install goes smoothly, and it gets power - I can print from OK from media cards from the camera.

I have also disabled my fire wall protection.

Any ideas as to why the usb ports aren't being recognized?

Please help!

Hi carollynn...

Let's take a look at a registry setting for this...just out of curiosity.

Click Start, then Run, type regedit, and click "Ok".

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_Machine, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Services, and click on Usb

In the right pane, what is the value (under the Data heading) given for the "DisableSelectiveSuspend" entry?

If Usb is not present in this registry string, post back and let me know...
