Which one are you using?
Can you also tell me exactly what the error message says when you try to print?

1. Reboot (or power on) your computer. As soon as the LED on the monitor changes from amber to green (or as soon as something appears on screen) press the DEL key several times.
On some computers, you need to use a different key (such as F1, F2 or F10 for example). You should see a message at the bottom of the screen telling you which one to press.
2. Once you manage to get into the bios, have a look through it for a setting that refers to the Parallel (LPT1) port. If you have a section in the bios labelled 'Integrated Peripherals', then you should find the LPT1 settings in here.
3. When you find them, make sure that the LPT1 port is ENABLED & that the port type is set to ECP or bi-directional. If port type is currently set to SPP, EPP or standard, then change it to ECP or Bi-directional.
Also make a note of the IRQ number assigned to that port. (Should be 5 or 7).
If you make any alterations to the port type, then remember to save the changes before exiting the bios & rebooting.
Let me know what happens
