If ISA, then we have work to do in the BIOS (IRQ assignment/routing) and in Windows XP to support ISA.
But why not cut our losses and use USB? About all I ever need to do is...
a. Enable the USB ports.
b. Install USB and/or Motherboard drivers (hint at http://www.usbman.com )
c. Follow the printer install notes.
Hello, I have posted this problem on here before as well as contacted epson and microsoft...but i still cannot print. Heres the problem- New computer, Windows XP, Epson Stylus C84(wich worked fine on old system and works if i hook up to other system in house) Have tried 3 diffrent parallel cables, uninstall and reinstall printer drivers, uninstall reinstall printer port, tried every diffrent bios setting for port(bios is updated), did a FULL uninstall and reinstall of XP, heck- i cant even get it to print after hooking it up to i\o magic parallel card. All ports are assigned correct. System utilities shows port(s) as working with no problems. And computer recognises printer when hooked up. I have done many of other things but this is getting long enough, anybody out there got any ideas?? Thank You,
