Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

This issue was the result of a Windows update that has recently been fixed in the KB3140743 update. If you are still experiencing this issue, download the latest Windows update.

You can also temporarily resolve the issue by completing the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + X.
  2. Click Device Manager.
  3. Expand the section for Ports (COM & LPT).
  4. Right-click on the LPT port that is experiencing the issue.
  5. Click Properties.
  6. Click the Port Settings tab.
  7. Under Filter Resource Method, select an option that is not currently selected.
  8. Click OK.

 

When you troubleshoot issues with a parallel device, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Parallel cables

  • Parallel ports

  • Parallel devices

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the parallel cable, parallel port, and parallel device in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different parallel cable, parallel port, and parallel device in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the parallel ports and parallel device, it is recommended that you do the following:

Note: Some parallel devices only work if the LPT port number is between a certain range, usually LPT1 or LPT2.

Installation

Before you install the driver, make sure that your operating system is current (for example, the most recent service pack is installed).

  1. Download the latest drivers from the StarTech.com website at http://www.startech.com/Support. The part number and product ID are on the product packaging.

Note: Windows usually saves the files to the Downloads folder that is associated with your user account (for example, C:\Documents and Settings\your_name\My Documents\Downloads).

  1. After the download is complete, right-click the zip folder that you downloaded, click Extract All, and complete the instructions.
  2. In the list of extracted files, double-click the Setup.exe file.
  3. Complete the instructions to install the device drivers, and restart your computer when prompted to.

Your computer will automatically complete the driver installation and your device should be ready to use.

How To

To confirm that Windows detects your expansion card, complete the following:

  1. Press the Windows key+R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter.
  2. In Device Manager, under the appropriate heading, confirm that your expansion card is listed and that there isn't an exclamation mark next to it.  For example, a USB controller card would be under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

Your expansion card is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your expansion card, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

Before You Buy

Yes. This PCI card uses a universal connector keyed for both 3.3V and 5V that can be used with PCI and PCI-X. This type of connector is identified as having 2 separate notches, instead of just one.

I was in search of a way to keep older equipment working with Windows 7. This card is the real deal. It works exactly as advertised. We quickly ordered 2 more.
