PC: Dell precision T4300
Printer: HP LaserJet 1300
The printer connected via USB. Worked fine under Windows XP.
Now I installed Windows 7 x64 (clean install), installed PCL5 drivers (USB plug-n-play mode), after that - connected the printer, and it worked just fine, until 2 hours later user contacted me, 'cause it stopped printing.
In the Devices and Printers it shows yellow triangular exclamation mark warning sign on the printer and it says "Print error" in the queue. Restarting the task doesn't help
I tried to reinstall the driver (in all three modes) - no luck, I can't get it to print.
I reinstalled system several times - the same happens again and again. I am installing it, it works just fine, then it throws "Print error". After that I'm unable to fix it
I ran out of options.
Now I am reinstalling system again, and I don't know what to do, once it will be up.
UPDATE. Now, I have reinstalled the OS and HP LaserJet 1300 works fine! But the other printer (HP OfficeJet 8000) and the scanner (Canon LiDE60) - wouldn't work after reboot (before reboot they worked). I rebooted several times - nothing changes. Disconneting, rebooting, and connecting - doesn't help - I see 3 Unknown devices in the Drivers and Printers and HP 1300 that works!
I guess it has something to do with IRQ? And, obviously, it has nothing to do with this particular printer.
UPDATE. Oh, wait no. Nothing works. Pfff
