Plug USB printer in and nothing happens

I have an HP Deskjet 3915 USB that wouldn't print. So I un-installed and re-installed and when it came to the part to plug in printer, I did and nothing happened. Windows XP home wouldn't recognize it. So I took it to another XP machine and it installed and printed fine. Does anyone know of anything else to delete before trying to re-install so that XP will recognize this usb printer.Nothing shows up in the device manager when it is plugged in or unplugged.

Yay! Just my 2¢

Go into your device manager, and uninstall your USB hubs and controllers.Reboot, it will re-sense them and re-install the drivers for them.Then try again.
As with most HP printers, the DRIVER SOFTWARE needs to be installed *BEFORE* plugging in the USB cable, to make sure that it doesn't "auto sense" and load the wrong drivers.
Just my 2¢
