View Full Version : Printer Port



03-11-2000, 02:33 PM
At least once a day when I try to print I get a message that says ,in effect, that the computer can not communicate with the printer. If I remove the printer port and then allow Win98se to 'find' new hardware the printer works and will keep on working until I turn it off. Next time I try to print, same thing.
Printer is an HP710c
and drivers etc are installed from the HP set up disk.
I have reformatted hard drive and reinstalled Windows etc. twice.
I have added a brand new cable and printer peforms self test.
I have only 1 LPT port and indications are that it is OK.
Anyone got any bright ideas?
