Question about Computers & Internet
Hi - Rnies - That has to be setup in the system BIOS.
Boot the machine and as soon as you see the Dell logo hit the F2 key which will place you in the BIOS setup screen.
Under the On board Devices menu move to the LPT Port mode. Select EPP bidirectional and save the settings. You should be good to go, If you're still having problems return to the BIOS setting screen and chose ECP bidirectional.
All PC's have different BIOS versions over time and sometimes the settings get changed a bit or moved around but as long as you can find LPT settings and switch to EPP or ECP you'll be fine.
Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya
