Help, over the last two years when first turning on my computer it won't recognise the LPT:1 printer port it just says Com1 under Ports in Device Manager. I have to uninstall Com1 then turn off computer and hit the reset button when 'safe to turn off' appears. When windowsxp loads for the second time then the LPT:1 printer port is recognised. I'am concerned that it could eventually damage the hardware.
