Printers - I'm going nut's

o.k. here's the problem.

My printers have stopped working (obviously), Windows brings up an error there

Was an error writing to DOT4_002 for the printer HP Officejet K Series.
There was a problem pinting to the port.
Please check to make sure your printer is configured to use a valid port.

On the other print I get a similar error.

Both printers are connected to the PC and turned on, I've tried rebooting the PC but to no avail.

I've also tried printing in linux on the same PC and it refuses to work, no error messages though.

The only recent changes were the installation of a NIC and the Installation of Suse Linux 9.3 Pro over an existing Mandrake 10.1 install. The printers have worked since.

I'm going to try with my laptop now as I suspect it's the PC rather than the printers...

Could anyone give me a hand to figure out the problem here?

I think I've sorted it - dodgy USB extension :roll:
