Printing/Port (LPT 3) Issues

I have been having tons printing issues. First the printer and computer were not "communicating." Everything was uninstalled/reinstalled and after numerous other things, the test pages finally printed. Now it's not working again. When I pulled up the device manager, under Ports (COM and LPT), there is a yellow ! by Printer Port (LPT 3). I'm assuming this is why I cannot print. I right clicked on this to look at the properties, but followed the directions on troubleshooting, but it's still not working. Why is the yellow exclamation mark there and how do I fix this? I have 4 documents sitting in the queue. I have a Dell Dimension 4700, Dell AIO printer 922 and use a USB, Windows XP service pack 3. Any help is simple terms would be greatly appreciated!

  1. go to the Dell Drivers website, and pull an older driver from their database. uninstall your current version, and install a previous version. See if that works.
