Check for something else talking to your LPT port - print buffer, palm pilot software - something.  It could be some Compaq utility thing - they're known to do that.

Under XP it should work perfectly.

Subject: [WriteLog] XP and laptop keying problems

Downloaded and installed User-port per directions for my laptop running XP 
and keying off the LPT1 port.

Results are that in conversation mode, the sending is choppy with many 
characters missed or incorrect. In logging mode, ie: DXpedition mode, I can't get 
the laptop to key the rig.

Using a 756Pro and a Compaq Preserio.  Any suggestions or help appreciated.

We did confirm that the module was insalled and running-

Leaving for 3DA in 4 weeks- Hope to have this resolved before then-
