Thank you for your promt reply but I have managed to get things going again as I got hold of the HP web site down loade an updted driver and found out what I was doing wrong. Basically my USB port for an HP Multi printer required an id of 'DOT4' rather than the LPT1 that it had latched itsel onto.
My problems started when XP Service Pack 3 downloaded and I lost funtionality with a few things, so much so now that it would appear that the registry is so full that my system has almost slowed to a halt and I am getting STOP errors after a period which means usually a restart. I have tried the Micosoft patches with little or no success and I am now looking at installing aother hard drive with the view to saving files to as I think my presant drive has been corrupted.

Cheers

Canon PIXMA MP190 'not responding'


There are possible causes of this not responding status message you get. you will try out these option i have listed here and see which one resolves the problem. after each one, try to print from a file and from the web.
1. Configure driver to correct printer port
On the 'Ports' tab of 'Printer Properties' window, select the correct port for the printer driver.
From the Windows desktop, open the printer's properties window.
Click the Ports tab.
Below 'Print to the following port(s)' section, select the port to which your printer is connected.
Click 'Apply' to accept the changes.

Click General tab and then click 'Print Test Page' to confirm the changes corrected the issue.
2. Checking USB Connections
You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.
Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, try connecting the USB cable directly into the computer.
Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
3. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.
when you are through, restart the system.
4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver
If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.
