Usb device not recognised HP 1005

Hp 1005 was imstalled and worked fine but after about 2 weeks of use a "usb device not recognised message appears"
reinstallation did not help.But when istalled on another machine it worked fine I have this same problem on a Vista OS laptop. The HP device came with a manual indicating that it supported Windows Vista but I only got this to work once, then got this message
"USB Device not recognized
HP's website says that they will provide drivers for this soon. I doubt it... DOES ANYONE HAVE A WORKAROUND (short of buying a whole new printer device) ???? Thanks

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Turn off the power by using the power switch, wait at least 30 seconds, and then turn on the power and wait for the device to initialize.
If a surge protector is being used, remove it. Plug the device directly into the wall socket.
Use thepower switch to turn the device on.

    If not then try reinstalling the printer.
