After my last reinstall of Win 98 SE, my machine doesn't seem to be "seeing" my LPT1 port. I have reinstalled since then, but with no luck, and I cannot(?) install my Cannon BJC-4300 because of this. PC specs are:
120Mhz Pentium
64M of RAM
8 Gigs of HD

ANY help would be appreciated!!

Hello!

Can you get into your BIOS and check there? Make sure the lpt1 port is enabled.

Did you do a full windows update of all your drivers from this reinstallation of Win 98?

Did you try going to the Control panel and add hardware and manully help your computer see this port/ and what com it's on.

Or even in the same place [printers] and add a printer this way and then tell it where to find drivers?

Did you check the Device Manager to see if it shows a problem/conflick and try fixing it from there.

To check the Device Manager, right click on My Computer and click on bottom properties. If you see any yellow quotetion marks or quesstion marks then that will show there is a conflick and Then I would remove the conflick and uninstall the canon drives/programs agian and the restart the computer and then reinstall the hardware drivers again.

Things to try - good luck
