I have been trying to get the on board parallel port to work
So far the I have tried connecting a parallel cable to the port on the board and connected a receipt printer.
port doesnt show up in windows or the bios.
have tried to update the bios
any ideas would be appreciated

As far as I am aware there are no parallel ports on the Pro Desk 400 G1, you may mean the serial port?
A parallel port is D shaped and approx 2 to 3 times the lenght of the VGA port, it is a female port (it has holes and not pins)
A serial port is also D shaped, it is about the same size as the VGA port and it is a male port (it has pins rather than holes)
I hope that this helps
