    I connected a HP 5470c scanner to my parallel port, and connected the printer to the scanner. When I reboot Windows, the scanner is recognized, but the printer is not. What should I do next?

    Check to see if you have the correct printer cable and then go into the BIOS and make sure the LPT port is set up for Bi-directional communication. Not sure if you have to set the port on the scanner up or not, but it's worth a look in the manual.
