    You would not think so would you. I do have a lot of work related programs and I think trying to transfer all that is what is causing the snarl up. All is working except the printer. I started a new thread just in the off chance someone can throw me a bone on what to do next.

    Did you change operating systems? Such as, go from XP to Vista(this switch often times creates a lot of problems), or go from one of the earliest service packs of XP to Windows 7, or from Vista home premium(or basic to Windows 7 premium or ultimate? Lots of times if you change from one type of one system to another type of another system or skip a system entirely when upgrading, causes a lot of driver compatibility errors, and a lot of confusion internally, again, esp. If you skip a step.
    >_< Ah the lovely printer errors. Or HP printer randomly gave us that message you cited in the other thread a few months back. We ended up having to reinstall the program for the printer, reinstall the drivers for the ports, and all these other lovely small tasks to get it to work again. Hopefully yours doesn't need that.

    I stuck with XP just to avoid that snarl, although I had professional before and now it is the home version. I did uninstall the printer and re-install it. But how did you re-install the drivers for the ports? That sounds like a likely candidate for the problem. My printer is an HP photosmart too.

    I forget how it was done as I was on XP then, and am now on Win7 where everything is much different, system setting-wise, and my fiance, who's a computer genius was helping. But I believe I went into the system settings, disabled all the ports, and the re-enabled them at some point in the process, again I don't remember 100%. Usually, if the port is re-enabled, it should've 'forgotten' the permissions and won't recognize the object being plugged in and will ask to reinstall the drivers. It's awfully confusing nonetheless.

    Ahh, I may look into that. Not looking forward to installing the printer again though.
