Bios does not recognizes this parallel port card and when I want to change from ECP to EPP I can not do this because in BIOS is just serial port A

Hello casi. Welcome to the Forum.

Did you install a Windows 7 driver for that parallel port card?
You can't get it to work without the correct driver.

Does you motherboard have a built-in parallel port?
If not, the BIOS will not have any settings for one. It's been a long time since I've used a parallel port card but I recall that everything is recognized on the software level, not the hardware level. I don't believe the BIOS would see a PCI card as a parallel port, just another device.

You want to open the Device Manager and check to see if there is a parallel port listed. Check the settings of the port against the specifications for the card. If the port is shown and is configured correctly you should be able to print to that port.

What is your core problem? A printer that won't print?
It would help to know the specs of your computer and the model of printer you are trying to use.

Hello casi,
I have a few questions for you,
1/ How do you know this card is running in ECP mode?
2/ Did you receive a utilities package for this card with the drivers, the utilities package would possibly contain a program to change mode.
3/ "PCI ECP Parallel Port (LPT3)" is this reported in the BIOS or Device Manager?

I suspect that the card has an inbuilt BIOS where these changes are made I have tried searching the internet for answers but have found none
It may be that these functions change automatically, or as I have previously mentioned you may need a program that will allow you to do this in Windows. Lastly if the device shows up in Device Manager right clicking on the device may give you the option to change mode.
I hope this helps

The adapter will not show in BIOS as a parallel port.
Because it is a PCI card and not a standard parallel port.
