    I've just come back from by sisters house and her pc wont start at all
    unless you unplug the usb cord from the printer.
    The pc is quite an old Packard Bell but the printer is a brand new HP
    Deskjet.
    This doesn't happen to all usb devices though because she has a usb digital
    camera and a web-cam plugged in also that do not need unplugging.

    Maybe it helps to disable 'legacy support' in bios, and also disable
    booting from USB drive, if applicable.
