sorry, i'm feeling a little "thick" --- can you explain what you mean when you say you scrolled down the available ports? Where? Somewhere in windows?
I thought I understood, and went back to make sure i had downloaded the driver labled HP LaserJet 1200 - USB. And actually, i had NOT. But now that i do have the USB version, i'm still not having success installing the printer. keeps telling me to make sure its plugged in an powered on, but never finds it.
