I have an HPIII printer that has performed admirably for about 12 years.  I have been using it most recently on my P4 computer (ASUS motherboard) with no problems until I upgraded the AMI BIOS.  Now, it won't print although the computer has some contact with the printer (can determine whether or not the paper tray is inserted).

Have you checked the bios settings on the the parellel port. The bios upgrade may have defaulted them to the wrong setting.

thanks a lot.  still working on the right settings but that certainly seems to be the problem.  The BIOS had set the parallel port to disabled.
