is it a USB or parralel port printer? and is this a recent printer or a new one, and what OS are you running it on?

it is not a usb port type. it is maybe parallel. i have XP sp3 as my os.
this is a recent printer, because we formatted the pc lastyear and i forgot to install the driver for the printer..

i don't know if it is seen in the device manager because,as i have seen.. it says ECP printer port..

Do you have the latest driver installed? not just the one that came with it, but the latest? its possible the driver that came with the printer is not compatible with service pack 3, I would go to the printers main site and download the latest driver from there and see if that does any good.

on most printers there are 2 buttons a power button, and a feed button, the feed button sends the paper through the printer, whether theres a document being printed or not. have you tried rolling back to an older driver?

You can usually find them online. Is the parrelel port integrated into the motherboard or is it a card plugged into one of the PCI slots?

do you have another computer that you could try this printer out on? and do you have another printer with a parralel port you can plug in? I ask because you can find out the exact problem with elimination. If the printer works fine on another computer, then you know that the printer works fine. and if you try a different printer on this computer, and it works, then you know its a driver error, but if the other printer does not work, then theres a chance that it is a hardware related issue. if the 2100 does not work on the other computer, there is a chance the printer is bad. If you have no other printers or computers to do this, you could also try purchasing a USB to parralel port adaptor, you can find them online or even sometimes at stores that sell computer stuff, like computer stores, office depot, or possibly even wal-mart, and try it with that and see if it solves your problem.
