Adding Printer after system re-booted.

Got the right drivers, and service pack?

If Parallel port is built in, check CMOS for Parallel port settings. EPP or ECP mode may be required.

Get a parallel loop-back plug, and test the parrelel port. Could be dead/damaged.

Test the cable, get another printer, or test the printer on another system.
