hi all, ive tried to install printer on my mums computer and its not having it. when i click on device manager and go under ports theres only COM port there but not LPT. Is there a way i can get this enabled so i can connect my mums printer up and get it running. There is an LPT port on the motherboard as its worked before but ive formated the hard drive and put XP back on and now the LPT port has gone.

Thanks if anyone has any info on this

Have you made sure it is enabled in the BIOS?
I finally got it all together, now if I could just remember where I put it.
