# this is just a guess from another parallel port card (Lava) that would not
operate at its found address.

# some parallel port cards and/or their attached devices will not run at the
high address range that windows assigns to them. (+6000) You may have to
assign the card, by whatever means, range 0278 or 0378 and your onboard
parallel port the other address. Then go into CMOS and assign the onboard
port its address, if needed ( if changed). Now that is a windows fix, not
so it may not be a panacea.
