    Can anyone please help. I have recently upgraded pc from a AMD Duron 1.3, to a AMD Sempron 2.2. Had to change m/board, and upgrade memory from SDRAM to DDR. Since doing this, my old HP deskjet 820c xi wont operate properly. It prints for 2 seconds, then tells me there is a comunications error, and have to check cables, etc. Doing this doesnt resolve the problem. I havent changed the operating system, still using 98 2nd edition. Using LPT1 port. Any ideas please?

    Boot to BIOS (see manual), load defaults, exit and save.

    Did you load the chipset drivers for the new motherboard? Is this a new 98 load or did you just move the hard drive between the systems? Try different settings for the LPT port in the bios like ecp, bidirectional, etc. and see if one works for you.
