I don't know that printer, but it's possible it uses bidirectional communication (thru a specific cable), which Windows checks (and uses !!), while DOS does not.

That would explain why a Print Screen under DOS works fine, ehils Windoze says that "LPT has an error".

Try this: go to BIOS setup and see to change parallel port definition setting it as SP.

More than Likely vikiing is right.  I'd make sure that I had an IEEE 1284 compliant cable, and I'd also check to see if my bios was set to ECP/EPP/or SPP.  Try each of the settings to see which on works.  The documentation should tell you what kind of printer port is required. Good luck
