Picture of the parallel port card where the chip can be clearly seen ?
Not from the internet, take a picture of your card.

Well, that will most probably not work.
Try to find something with the MosChip or NetMos on the chip, they always worked for me and are usually 15 to 20$ a piece.

Great, Tommy and thanks very much and you have saved me a lot of anxiety and I can stop going round in circles. Will now look for a card.
As a slight change in subject when I did the latency test from the hard drive it was horrendous, 30,000,000 +. I am now running on a USB flash drive and it appears ok although mouse can be a bit erratic. The drive is USB 3 and will I benefit from going to USB 3.1(I think)?

That is almost always a sign of a failing hard drive or it's controller.
Just in case, did you check if the mother board has a parallel port header ?
