  1. PCI Parallel Card - cant print multiple pages!? FIXED!

    My 1st question! Generally I'm answering them.

    Got a customer whose PSU blew, taking the Onboard Parallel Port with it.

    We installed a Sunnix PCI Parallel card - which supports ECP.

    It'll print 1 page fine, but won't print multiple pages, whereas it would before.

    Any ideas?

    just some thoughts...
    - latest driver for the pci card?
    - tried another pci bus?
    - shared irq(s) with other devices?
    - disabled blown onboard parallel port?
    - cross testing with a different printer?

    maybe we can exclude some factors and find the one you need to fix....

    MSCRX - it WAS the onboard! As soon as it was disabled, it worked - even though printer was using new card.
