HP Deskjet 840C Printing Problem
Posted on 2001-06-16
This is probably something really obvious, but I cannot find it myself!
I currently have a Pentium II 433, loads of RAM and disk space, operating on W95. I have a Winwriter 150C connected to LPT1 and it works fine.
I am trying to set up a second printer, an HP Laserjet 840C to also print off LPT1. This printer works fine off of my laptop running on NT.
When I try installing the drivers I get an error message indicating that it cannot find the new printer on LPT1, even though the new printer is connected straight into the back of the PC with the same parallel cable that works on the laptop. Obviously, when I subsequently try to print, nothing happens.
Printing at the command prompt works fine.
What am I doing wrong?
