ATX PC will not start when printer is powered on
Posted on 1998-12-22
I have just purchased a clone ATX Intel Pentium II 350mhz PC. There is an Brother laser printer attached to LPT1. If the printer is powered on the PC will not start, if I turn the printer off the PC powers up fine, I can then power on the printer with no problems. Any suggestions? The printer cable has been checked. The printer worked fine previously on a Pentium 133. The printer port of the ATX PC in fine.
