Posted on 2008-11-11
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
The Dell Vostro I purchased did not have a parallel port. I have a number of programs that I operate in a DOS envorionment. For this purpose I am using a partitioned disk with a DOS partition. I cannot use a USB to parallel adapter as in simply wont work. I need a hardware solution such as an expansion LPT1: parallel printer adapter card for the vostro to be able to connect a trusty dot matrix printer under DOS.
