Printer port problems

I upgraded a PC of mine from ME to 2000 and all seemed to be working fine until i decided to use my colour printer on LPT1 to print. I got a failed to print message from printers folder. On further investigation, i have discovered that the LPT1 port is no longer listed in device manager and it seems that windows cannot recognise it.

Can anyone give me any clue as to why this is happening?

Some very good advice if you click here

Creating a new port is one as well as changing the options in the BIOS for the LPT port to standard
