In order to print, I have to reinstall the ecp LPT port (alternatively, I can change the resources from one configuration and back again).  This fix doesn't work after the computer is rebooted, and I have to reinstall the port again.  I guess something isn't loading when I boot.  This problem exists with both an HP laserjet and canon printer.  The computer is a dell latitude laptop.

Try this and see if it helps.  Start>Settings>Printer, right click your printer icon, Properties, Details tab.  Where it says "Print to the following port" higlight LPT1 (or click Add Printer Port and enter LPT1), click Capture Printer Port.  Exit, reboot, and give it a go.

optimus1, go to the CMOS/BIOS and change to bi-directional. See if that help.
