LTP port not recognized

By kwduke ·
I have a system with Win98 that I just upgraded the motherboard on(Asus A7n266-VM), previously the LPT port was working fine.. I have several things daisy chained thought the parallel port, but I cannot get anything loaded back on there. I have checked the Device Mgr. it says that there are conflicts, when I chk the resource tab for conflicts there are none, I chkd the BIOS and made sure the settings there were correct. I went back to the device mgr and forced the same settings as the BIOS, which actually should have been the same as default (IRQ7,I/O 378,ECP..) and still the same error. I have unistalled everything and tried to let windows automatically install it, it does see the port but will not initialize or let you add a printer, etc. because it goes back to the same error (Code 15)about conflicts, yet there are still no conflicts listed. I cannot update the driver because it goes back to the windows driver. Could the port on the motherboard be bad?
Thanks

Pull all the cards from the system and then load one at a time to see if the LPT port will be detected,this may be a hardware compatibility issue with one of your card causing the problem.

It is possible that there is a problem with your port, but let's try a few things first.

Start with NO devices connected to the port.

Download and install the latest chipset drivers from either Asus, or nvidia.
Also, check for a BIOS update from ASUS. If there is a newer version of the BIOS, install the BIOS update first.

Check device manager for conflicts. If there are no conflicts, shut down, and connect parallel devices 1 at a time.

I suspect that what you have is a conflict between the drivers form the old motherboard, and the new drivers needed for the Nvidia chipset on the new board.
If the above doesn't work, go into device manager, and remove ALL devices connected to the motherboard.
Reboot, and make sure that thecorrect Nvidia drivers are installed for the motherboard resources.
