Can't see PrinterAttachedtoXP onNetwork?

By collesidis ·
I can not see my HP 722C that is attached to my XP Compaq PC from any other machines on my network. Also, there is an exclamation point next to parallel devices when I veiw devices. I have tried to delete driver, reload with CD( doesn't work) and download from HP a XP driver( says I don't need one)

You need to change your BIOS settings. Go to BIOS settings and find the Parallel Port Mode, change it to ECP mode. Check other settings such as IRQ and address. After that an exclamation point next to parallel devices should disappear. Then you may need to reinstall driver.
Enable the file and print sharing in the network properties.
