Win98 PnP registry problem

By pgwells ·
I have installed a OKI fax/printer. But startup PnP did not detect or Add Hardware wizard. When I run the acompanying setup program I receive " ERROR: Unable to find PnP key \Enum\Root\*PNP0404 in Registry" message, yet the key is still in the registry but not at this location. Scanreg /fix does not help. Any ideas?
Regards
Pete

Go into you Bios and load the set-up and bios defaults. Then make sure to turn PNP back on before you exit.

Make sure the printer is on before you turn your PC on.

Install the printer without the setup program. After it is installed, run thesetup program again.

Press Delete ( del ) on boot up , now this part can vary depending on
your version .
Go to Intergrated Peripherals & then Onboard Parallel Mode , using
the arrow key .
Make a note of the existing entry .
Use the Page Down button to try thenext entry .
Press Esc .
Save & Exit , Y , press Enter .
If it is still not right , repeat above , again & again .
If you find a entry that works , make sure you make a note of it .
Eventually you get back to where you started . John .
