Windows cannot recnognize my HP laserjet 1020 printer
A week ago, everything was OK, the only thing I did was to change my usb printer cable with a longer one, and the windows can not recognize it ... also maybe I changed the port, which I was using before.
Now I reinstall my drivers ... - nothing. I added a new printer with the windows wizard ... - nothing.
the message I receive, when I turn ON my printer is "USB Device Not Recognized"

It's best to put it back in the same port some times XP is just goofy like that. Did you uninstall the printer completely? Are you sure that the USB cable you have works? You can check what port the printer is on by doing the following
Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes Right Click the Brother Printer and select Properties. At the top you have different tabs. Select the third tab labeled Ports.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

To change the default settings for all future print jobs in Windows XP 1. In the Windows task bar, click Start, select Settings, and click Printers and Faxes. 2. Right-click the HP LaserJet 1020 printer icon. 3. Click Properties, or click Printing Preferences. 4. Change the settings, and click OK. 5. On the Effects tab, select the watermark you want to use. NOTE Not all printer features are available from all drivers or operating systems. See the printer properties (driver) online Help for information about availability of features for that driver.
I'm not sure, but I think I understand that you're connecting using a USB hub? If so, try connecting it directly to a USB port. Many times an unpowered USB hub does not supply enough power to run a laser printer. Unhook the printer. Go to Printers and Faxes - delete the printer. Hook up directly to a USB port. Let the computer re-install the printer.
