some mother boards parallel ports
are not true ecp epp ports and when you hook up scanner and printer to share things dont work very well
eg locking up poor or slow scanning etc
with out knowing your mother board type etc it is hard to say i had the same problem with a 166 pentium so to cure the fault was to install a separate
parallel card and disable your on board
parallel port via your bios set up
then it should work
