Afraid I can't really help you, but my dad is having similar problems (Win95b, parallel connection) It worked fine for a few weeks then stopped working. Printer and cable checked out fine on another machine. Tried new driver from Xerox site: slight improvement - it now prints test pages from the xerox software but word etc "can't find default printer". Printer is set as default in control panel... very confusing.

Searching the Xerox help forums turned up the following possibilities. Haven't had a chance to look into them yet, but I'm not optimistic. Will probably try a full windoze re-install next week=-(

**********Extracts from xerox help forum************

After selecting print nothing happens and there is no communications with the printer.

- Verify power is applied to the printer.
- Check to make sure the parallel port or USB cable is plugged correctly both into your PC and printer.
- Ensure that the printer isn't set to Work Offline by going to Start, Settings, Printers then right click on the
M750 or M760. Check to see if there is a check mark next to Pause printing, or Work Offline.

4. If you're running Windows 95, 98, or Me, look to see if you have an ECP printer port:
a. Right click My Computer and select Properties.
b. Click on Device Manager.
c. Scroll down until you see the list of Ports, and click the +.
d. Look for LPT1. If it reads "ECP," change this in the BIOS of your computer to "SPP" or "Bi-Directional." If you are
unsure how to change settings in the BIOS of your computer, contact your computer's manufacturer.

Should the M750 printer be unplugged when not in use?

No, the M750 printer should never be unplugged. The M750 require some power at all times in order to maintain the print heads
for optimum print quality. This maintenance is done periodically and uses very little power.
