Re: help needed from computer wizards

Just add the printer port manually, instead of letting the Operating System try find it.

What Operating System you got anyway, Win95, Win98 or ????

Re: help needed from computer wizards

Whoa. That's quite a vocabulary you have there.

Now, if you installed a different printer, you should have gotten some drivers with it which you'll need to install to make it work. If you don't have these, go to the manufacturer's web site & download the drivers from there.

Let us know how it goes.

Re: help needed from computer wizards

install the drivers which came with your new printer fires but if that still dosent work
use the add new hardware wizzard to search for it and if it dosent find it add it mannualy with the wizzard if that doesent work check in the bios to see if its enabled and what the settings are.
