Hp officejet g85 scanner/ installation and a key question

Hello, I have a NEW computer containing ASUS p4b266 -2Ghz, 512Mb Samsung ram, 80Gb 8Mb cache hdd, tdk 32 burner, pioneer 16x dvd, Matrox g550 video and Inwin q2000 case. My HP g85 all-in-one printer parallel connection seems to be unreliable and slow.

1.) Would installing USB solve the following and/or would parallel be best: It seems to take a long time to scan a picture and then while the picture comes over appearing to be the full picture it get chopped in half (vertically) Sometimes it doesn't find the scanner and I have downloaded the HP uninstaller and purchased the latest HP driver on cd. The best order of installation is to connect parallel cable, boot up, and follow PnP requests to the cdrom for driver info, etc.

2.) I am also disappointed that ADAMANT.com has failed to send a key to my new Inwin Q2000 case I ust bought from them. They say Inwin no longer includes the keys with the case. One reason for paying extra for the case was to lock it up away from my young children's fingers. Any suggestions there?

Go into system BIOS.  This is done by turning the computer all the way off (ie-not just restart) and turning it back on.  At the initial screen before Windows loads, you will see a message saying "Press ___ to enter setup" or something like that.  ____ will be replaced with a key, usually DEL or F1.  Press the key and you will go into BIOS.

You may have to browse around a bit, but there will usually be an option such as Config or Ports.  We want to get to a section mentioning ports.  Go to the Parallel port and there should be an option called Mode or Operating Mode.  It will probably say Bi-Directional.  Change this value to ECP (usually F5 key will toggle values).  Then save changes and exit (usually F10 key)

Let the computer boot and try to print.  This will fix the problem.
