    Hi,

    On a HP desktop comptuer (running WinXP PRO) we have Epson-LQ printer
    connected via LPT port. When user restarts or shut-down computer the printer
    is displayed as not-connected and the only thing to get it working is to
    delete it and re-scan HW so that Windows installs it again. Have checked all
    settings, Windows are patched with latest defintiions, also no virus or
    spyware.
    Any ideas what is causing this problem and how to solve it?
    Thank you in advance, regards,
    Miha

    Then it isn't going to work correctly because Epsom didn't produce any
    winxp drivers

    Does the printer reinitialize when the PC starts or restarts. The
    font/control lites should blink and the print head should cycle to the
    left margin. If this is not happening, I would verify that the proper
    motherboard drivers have been installed, and the parallel cable is good.
