That does help[. I didn't have this problem with an ESS and i suspected it was only a parallel port issue. looks like i am correct. There really isn't anything else on these computers.

I believe the problem lies with the parallel port driver that was changed in version 3.043.053. I rolled two machines back to 3.043.052 and this problem seems to have gone away. I hope this helps others with the same problem.

Well,
After enough time and testing, the older version will stop responding as well under windows 7.

Sounds like YOU just need to turn off
"PCIe Link State Power Management"
Follow this link to know how to do it:-
