USB printer not recognize

Hello

I want to install a HP printer HP laserjet 1020 on a PC with Windows 7 32

When I plug it, I receive a message like USB device not recognize. I did try the USB port with a USB memory stick, and the USB port is functioning.

This printer had worked few time with the PC. Now, never connect.

I uninstall the printer driver then re-install, same problem

I did try the printer in another system and it work

Is it possible the the USB port is no sourcing enough current for the printer?

Is there other test that I could do?

Martin

Resolve for the moment

Did play with the BIOS in the USB port section

I selected to allow the PC to drive OLD usb technologie

I un-install and re-install the driver

Hope it will be stable
