Check the following :-

1. Ensure the PCI Parallel card is properly installed with correct driver & the resources is configured as Lpt3 in device manager.

2. Next check that the driver for the KX-P1121 printer is correct. Try re-install the driver by replacing the files when prompted.

3. Check the PCI manual is there additional jumper or dip-switch that need to be adjusted ?

Then cross your finger for every systemm restart... thumbup.gif

1. Sit properly, driver is correctly install, device manager already shown out highspeed parallel = lpt3 ; printer port = lpt1. Both also try with fresh printer driver install

2. Driver is following panasonic website provided for win7 32-bit. Its a fresh install driver without keeping existing.

3. the pci manual basically its the most simple, just a chip without any jumper, nor motherboard have the jumper to set as well.

Mind if I ask why use Lpt3 when you got Lpt1 ? The Lpt1 damaged/faulty ?

If Lpt1 is damaged/faulty, then just disabled the Lpt1 in BIOS, then configured the PCI card to use Lpt1 instead.

Try connect the printer to original Lpt1 port first, try below :-

1. Restart computer, Press "DEL" key or similar to access the BIOS. Key must be pressed during POST screen but before Windows Startup screen.

2. Goto --> Advanced --> Peripherals --> Parallel / LPT / Printer --> Select --> Normal / Bi-directional / Disabled.

3. Save & Restart PC.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If still cannot, then disabled the Lpt1 & follow below :-

4. Goto --> My Computer --> Right-click --> Manage.

5. Browse --> Device Manager --> Ports (Com & Lpt) --> You should see only Lpt3 available --> Right-click --> Properties.

6. Goto --> "Port Settings" Tab --> LPT Port Number = Lpt3.

7. Restart PC.
