    Yes, and no. It's USB, and at one point, I had about 3 or 4 cables strung together so I could have it on the other side of my room. At the moment, I've moved it back to near the machine, so it only has the one cable. All of these cables are different from what it was plugged into at work. But no, I have not swapped out that one remaining USB cable since this round of troubles began. When I do hook it back up, I'll try that, just for good measure.

    Ok, it's been a solid week now with no BSOD, so I think we can safely say the problem is somewhere between the print spooler software or the printer itself. I'm going to re-enable the spooler, but not plug in that printer just yet. There is another (newer) printer in a different room, on my network, which I can use for now. I'll give it a week that way, and see what happens.

    Ok, I think we can assume it was the printer causing all the problems. I've had the print spooler active for a week and a half now, WITHOUT the troublesome printer, and nothing has happened. Been able to print to the other one on the network just fine. Thanks for pointing me in that direction, I've marked this one as "solved".
