Troubleshooting parallel port conflict

By djfrankn ·
I have formatted a computer, previously run fdisk. Installed Windows XP, but I still receive a message of conflict with 3 ports at the load up of the BIOS. Then the Windows XP Device Manager recognizes the ports but shows an existing conflict. I uninstall the ports to force the OS search the drivers and install them but it didn't work. Neither when I set the BIOS configuration as DEFAULT.
Thanx for any help anyone could provide me

What OS was used on the system before you repartioned and formatted the hard drive. The transition to XP on older computers can be frustrating at times. The first thing I would do is check the motherboard manufacturers website for any known issues, updated drivers for the motherboard or bios etc.
