1.) Ensure XP is updated with latest device drivers 2.) Ensure latest chipset & motherboard drivers are installed 3.) Check USB drive, and USB port 4.) Boot up with any Linux OS Boot up disk and check if USB is working 5.) Install Windows 7 in case new drivers not available on XP
Brother has not released a printer driver specifically for Windows 7 and this model. You can however use a basic printer driver if the Windows Update feature of your operating system is set to "automatic:"
To set Windows Update to automatic, perform the following: (if you know it already is set to automatic, you may skip these steps)
1) Click "Windows Icon" (Start button) on taskbar
2) From the "Search Programs and Files" box type "change device installation" and start search
First suggestion is to shut down, change ports and then, upon reboot, wait a few minutes to let XP resolve the 'new' USB devices.
Second suggestion is to download and install the manufacturers drivers and then try switching ports.
Final suggestion is to use the port that works. i.e. I went to the doctor and said "It hurts when I do this". He replied "Well, then don't do that.".
p.s. you may want to list the model of the keyboard if you would like a more specific response.
I would boot in safemode (hold down f8 immediately when it starts (when it says Starting Windows xp), then delete all printers (associated with this) in device manager.
remove any printer software as well (add remove programs or start programs (printer program name, remove software IF listed),
also remove the port you are using in device manager be it lpt or usb. if the drivers siuggests installking without it connected do so, otherwise, just restart and it shoudl start installking the hardware amnd software it finds. be sure you have the correct drivers ready as well>

I don't know if you are using a cd from HP whith the windows xp software on it, because I done something like that before and didn't work, you have to find a cd from hp with windows hp software intallation on it otherwise you will have problems, after the installation you can search for the update drivers from hp.com.
