Original title: HP printer
I've been hitting a brick wall with this problem. I have an HP Deskjet 3000 Printer J310a that absolutely refuses to be recognized anymore by my desktop. The printer was installed fine on the computer previously but was left disconnected for a few months. When reconnected it, the desktop didn't recognize it at all. At the time it would still connect to my laptop (which has since gotten a new HD and is no longer a workaround option) both wirelessly and via usb so I know the printer and usb cable both work fine. Any thoughts on why a previously working, less than 3 year old desktop/printer package suddenly won't recognize each other. HP support says they don't support this "one of the greatest deskjet printers they've made" anymore (after less than 3 years?) but for $24.99 they'd email me an update to the driver.
