I replaced the power supply and the motherboard in an emachine.  Reinstalled the os and apps and joined the domain.  Worked great.  Turned it off and hooked up the hp laserjet 5 to lpt1, then turned it back on.  Printer was not detected, loaded the driver anyway.  Printer says ready!  Can't print a test page.  Printer used to work fine.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

I solved the problem myself by going into the bios and loading default settings.  I guess the lpt1 port was disabled in the bios although I don't know why.  Anyway it works now.  Do I get the points.  Im not sure what to do when I solve my own problem.
