I have a strange fault running two printers off one machine through an A/B switch. Works fine with printer [A] (Lexmark) but will not print to [B] (HP DeskJet 500). All I get is the message in the Printer Folder:-
"There was an error writing to LPT1 for the (HP DeskJet 500). Cannot access the port.
It may be in use by another proogramme. Quit the other programs & try printing again"
I've tried deleting and reloading the drivers, changed cables, bypassed the A/B switch, checked there are no clashes with other programs. I've also tried the configuration on another machine and it works OK.
Machine is Socket 7 AMD K2 500 Windows 98SE
Any ideas? Many thanks for your replies
