Have a problem with my parallel port...please help

\015 I have a software key for a cad/cam program that plugs into the parallel port, but every time try and start the program, it tells me it cant find the key. I know you can change the settings for the port in the startup settings, but I dont know which one it is and there are quite a few options. Can anybody point me in the right direction?\015\012\015\012thanks, courtney\015

Computer will reboot on Virus/Spyware scan at random. I have: 1. Installed clean XP SP2 parallel system and booted that one. Same problem. 2. Memory Test at boot time is OK. 3. Air circulation from Power Supply is weak. Hard Drive is very warm. Increased air on hard drive and RAM doesn't fix the problem. 4. Hard Drive diagnostic show returned code of 07; but OK after chkdsk. 5. Repair of original system by XP install disk was performed; but same problem. What is next step?


The weak airflow from the power supply unit (PSU) is suspect. Virus / Malware scanning is a disk and processor intensive operation - resulting in greater load on both. Increased load translates to heat. Check to be sure that the processor (CPU) fa ... Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
