Question about Compaq Presario 1800T and Presario 1800XL1 14.1 Inch TFT LCD Display - 175324-001 (175324001) CD-ROM Drive
I'm not sure that this is the correct number of the laptop that I have having the problem with. I'm trying to solve a problem for a friend and I just remember that the laptop is a COMPAQ Presario. It is running under Windows 2000. The machine has only 1 USB port. I wanted to be able to connect a LEXMARK printer T73 and a Microsoft keyboard, both with USB. The printer was working fine for several weeks before I tried to add the keyboard. I purchased a Belkin Thumb Hub that gave me 4 hubs. I plugged in the Belkin device and received an indicator light that led me to believe that it was working. However, after I plugged in my printer and keyboard, neither the printer or the keyboard worked. I then unplugged the Belkin device and plugged in just my printer to the existing port (back to the way it originally was) and now the printer that had previously been working will not work any longer. I noticed that the Thumb Hub says it is for Windows XP -- nothing about Windows 2000. I don't know what to do to get the printer working again. I have not tried to reload the printer drivers. Thanks!
