i am trying to fix and computer that once worked with mach3, i think the bios battery stopped working, so my friend messed up all the setting in mach3 and the computer stop working, it had win2k, i started over with winxp. i still trying to get the pci card into ecp mode, i turned off on board port, because it was only 3.3v i need 5v. it had a paraport card no name chip number ch352P@706 (it should work, it did before). then i tried a Rosewill Model RC-302, the i tried ltpDebug and it worked on motherboard lpt port but when i try it on both card it restarted the computer. i read that it should say ecp in the devise manger and both card dont, am i using the wrong driver. is there better lpt debugging software.

ltpDebug
rc-302 version 2.00.11

You don't need debugging software, you need a compatible driver, use the OS and driver you had working previously,

xp should work

Granted, yes, it will, provided you have the correct driver for your hardware.
Was a driver for XP written for your hardware?
