    I have a Lexmark 1150 All-In-One that had been working perfectly. It seems as though after I installed the XP SP2 update on my desktop the problem began, although I'm not sure this caused the problem. When I try to print anything from any program I get an error message that the computer is not communicating with the printer. However I can scan without any problems. If I switch the USB connection from the printer to my laptop (I run win98 second edition on the laptop), it works perfectly! As I said, the only change I made was updating my XP. There are no problems indicated on my device manager as far as the USB port used for the printer on the desktop. Any suggestions??

    Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your printer?

    Yes I did. In fact, I uninstalled the whole print program that came with the printer and re-installed it. The drivers are in the program.
