      not 100% sure that this is your problem but I have the same display (40x4) and i was using the plugin from inmotion for mine (i assume ure doing the same) and in the .ini file there is an option at the bottom that asks for the type of parallel port, make sure that it is an EPP (i believe). if that doesnt work, try the other options for that same setting. also check your bios and see what the parallel port is set at in their. make it an EPP and try it out. If anyone can give a definite it would help, but mines not actually even hooked up because of lack of case, but I know it does work. wish i could help more.
