i have just bought a new printer for my mothers Patriot computer,unfotunately it only has a usb port where the original had a parallel port, can i buy a cble to get around this or do i need to alter the computer?

The simplest, and probably cheapest, solution is to add a USB ports card to the computer. Check that you've got a spare slot, and check the computer spec. against the card spec. before you buy.

I don't disagree - simply providing an alternative, in case Lardy FB is not comfortable with installing a card.
