I have eCS 1.24 and if my Brother 1440 USB printer is on, the OS will
not get beyond the black screen, I have to turn off the printer and
CAD to get it to fully boot. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks

Are you saying that you don't even get the boot blob, nor anything else
if the USB printer is enabled, not even Boot Manager? If yes, then you
have a BIOS configuration bug. Suggest trying to update the BIOS.

Bill,
Sometimes I will get all the way up to the SNAP Information screen,
sometimes just the loading of the drivers, etc., once it got to the
clock on the desktop background color, and then it will hang, I can
then turn the printer off, CAD, and it will boot normally, then I can
turn the printer back on and it will be recognized. I have the latest
USB drivers with the eCS Software Subscription and everything. The
machine, an IBM NetVista P-III/1Ghz, 6879, is as up to date as it can
be.

I have a problem in that the machine hangs at the snap screen or during
Xworkplace/PMshell loading. I had assumed that something was wrong with
the ini files or the program attempting to read them.

But I too have an USB device that is always "on", an USB scanner. Maybe
I am suffering your problem...?

Bill,
That is the exact same thing that happens to me if the Brother USB
printer is "on". I have to make sure that it is off during boot up,
then when everything is OK, turn it on. I have a Canon LiDE 20 USB
scanner that is always connected, but is only "on" when I use TAME/2.
I have two onboard USB ports on the planar, and a USB card with two
more ports/PCI card. The printer is using on of the planar ports.

I'll disconnect the scanner to see if my problem goes away. This will
take a few days to affirm whatever.
