    Parallel Cable...Printer is listed as default in Control Panel. LPT 1 port in properties. But no LPT 1 port listed in Systems..only COM port when I expand "Ports"...New motherboard yesterday. As soon as I try to print I get error message.."failed to print". Went to HP to download drivers...HP says no HP or Compaq products installed and nothing available in my language!!! Beats me. Any help? New cable maybe?

    Sorry but we need to know at least something about the PC itself.

    If you installed a new motherboard was it EXACTLY the same make and model as the old one?

    If not, you have to reinstall Windows, as it will not detect the hardware correctly if the hardware (motherboard) has changed.

    Thanks to Kiwi guy and others but I found the problem. LPT port in BIOS disabled. Enabled and printer works.

    Had to call the store where I bought the Motherboard from and it was like I should have known this information like them. Invited them to my CNC machine shop to make them look and feel like idiots. No takers though. Thanks again. jberd99usa.
