Hi, I've been having a problem with my PC for a while and finally decided to try to sort it out. It will not boot when my printer is plugged in (Lexmark X3650), it just freezes at the splash screen. It's really annoying to have to unplug the printer every time I reboot the PC. I have googled the hell out of this and can't get a sensible answer, so I was hoping someone on here may know.
Things I have tried:
-using different port
-using different cable
-Changing boot priority
-Unsuring HD has priority over USB boot
The only thing that seems to work is turning USB emulation off. If I leave it off are there any disadvantages (it was on by default). I don't know a great deal about what it does exactly, only that it assigns USB memory cards below/above 530MB as floppy drives/hard drives respectively. What it actually does in practical everyday use I have no idea. Will it prevent me from doing anything? Or is it likely to cause problems when using other device? Is there a better way of sorting this?
Any help appreciated, many thanks.
