Could you explain this in a little more detail please. I'm having the same problem and have gone into the BIOS and only gotten confused.
The only settings that seem to have anything to do with the parallel port are in the "Integrated Peripherials" catagory and they don't make a whole lot of sense to me. The first one;
Onboard Parallel Port: 378/IRQ7
has the options .... Disabled, 3BC/IRQ7, 278/IRQ5
What do these mean? Is this even the correct one to play with?
The second one;
Onboard Parallel Mode: Normal
has the options .... EPP, ECP, ECP/EPP
More acronyms that create confusion.
Could you shed some light on this subject for me?
