Transfer the driver to diskette, use start button> setting> printers.
Sounds like an irq conflict. Is the printer on when you bootup? If you lose the sound again try moving the SC to another slot.
Check setup (bios) exit with save. see if it reinitalized the port.
If that model printer has a serial port you may try that, too. Serial printing is much faster than parallel anyway.
