I have a problem with my parallel port. My printer (non-USB) is not detected by the OS but it worked fine in another computer. So, it’s my belief that the parallel port is somehow messed up.
My questions would be:
- how to check this? Try connecting the printer to the serial port?
- Working with the serial port means slower printer performance?
- Is there anyway to repair a malfunctioning parallel port or must I change the whole motherboard?
Thanks for the support.
