Today i experienced a rather strange phenomenon. There may of been a simple reason behind it but i can't seem to graph it, i am hoping someone else can pinpoint the cause of this.
Initially i planned to use a desktop PC and a printer, connecting them with a USB cable. I have been using this setup for years, with no problems. Then, i simply unplugged it. Went over to another place and tried to use it again.
It worked fine, but after a system restart it practically became a ghost. It was not being detected, i tried to install it on two other computers , one of which is a isolated laptop but it still didn't work.
Later when i came home and re-setup the printer in the same configuration, it worked. It also installed perfectly on the other PCs. As well as that, the desktops ran windows xp and 8, while the laptop ran windows 7
Any ideas as to why this could of happened?
