    I have two parallel printers the I want to use on my XP system so I installed a second parallel port (PCI) and Iím getting the following message:
    This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
    The new LPT port 3 has an exclamation point in front of it and I can print.

    I knew there would be some conflict, but I canít seem to resolve it. I tried setting the port to LPT 1 and 2, but it still doesnít work. Also, for some reason, everytime I boot into XP, it keeps reinstalling two new serial ports (3 & 4), but I didnít add any new serial ports. Any idea how to get this working?
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance

    It's a matter of of seperatin' the interupts here but would usin' a data switch to switch between printers be easier? Or havin' 1 printer as a USB one? :?:
