I have noticed that the problem was that I was using the ground hole on the very left. As soon as I switched to another ground hole, the problem disappeared and the register changed instantly when wire was taken out. This is how mine looks like:

ground------ -[battery]+ ------data hole

if you mean i need to do this:

ground----data hole

No, I can't do that with my circuit so I must have to make use of what is given.

I do believe my parallel port is not functioning well because the data register gives me numbers different from what I plugged in. I need to use parallel port with a circuit that I need for my racing game.
