I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I removed and cleaned my print head, waited until it was completely dry, then reinstalled it. I let the printer do its thing and when it was done I ran a head cleaning and a nozzle check. The test page came out perfect. The printer then asked if I was done with my head cleaning and I pressed the confirm button and the printer shut off. It will not turn back on either. I tried messing with both the plug in the power strip and the end in the machine. I know the power strip works because my computer is on it and fine. When I press and hold the power button I can hear very faint beeps or.... they could be ticks- I cannot tell as they are really quiet. It reminds me of when the car's alternator is dead but the starter is trying as hard as it can.

Any ideas on why it would work just fine for 10 minutes and then crap out?

A:Epson XP610 won't turn on after cleaning

Do you have a Multimetre that you could test the cable with??

Just to ensure you are getting proper volts/amps (clean power). The only other recommendation I could make is try and unplug the printer.. Press and hold the power button for 15-30s, tap it a few more times for good measure, and then plug it back in and see what happens. Sometimes devices just need a good power drain.

We have a Windows 7 machine with a SUNIX LPT Port that appears to be working properly. A previous printer (same model) was fried when hit by lightning, but the computer is working normally. We have a new printer and new cable, but windows 7 does not see the printer attached. I have un-installed all Epson APD drivers and re-installed, but get an error

Could the parallel port have gotten fried also? If so, is there a way to test it? Any other ideas?

Hi, :wave:

I have a printer (Epson Stylus CX4300).
and I don't have colored ink anymore,
but I have black ink.

I don't use colored ink..
I often use black only.

but I can't print even I have black ink,
I changed it to black and white mode,
but it doesn't print
it always says that "replace cartridge"
but I'm not printing colored,
and I only need to print black.

1. Can I print black and white even I don't have
colored cartridge?

2. What is the reason why I can't print black and white even I have black Ink?is it because colored ink is also needed in printing black and white?

3. What are the other ways of printing black and white without colored ink?

Printer: Epson Stylus CX4300

Have Epson stylus photo 820. Is there a reliable method to clean tops of INK PORTS that go into print carts?

Most holes around tops of ports are completely coated so not even visible. Don't know the print head itself is clogged. Tops of ports appear to have a series of tiny holes around the top, like a gas cook stove burner.

Any suggestions on how to get the dried ink off tops of ports?

Read about cleaning kit for PRINT HEAD, but would they work unclogging the port holes? If so, how?

Would appreciate recommendations on specific kits, or other methods others have used.

I have an Epson Stylus DX4000, had for a while and use to work (with Windows XP)... then only connected once in a while and now not connecting to the computer so can not print/scan (although photocopying working, printer seems normal no flashing lights... no errors reported only 'epson scan can not print when try to start scanning).
- Seems when plug (via USB) to computer not recognized (does not appear in Device managers, usb controllers... and checked cable... tried dif usb plugs... other items such as ipod work so not computer).
- Tried reinstalling, turning on and off... looked to reset... obviously unable to print test page.
- From research think maybe the IEEE 1394 support has a problem recognizing but trouble shoot does not help... and so do not know what to do.

As you can see tried lots of things with no success, please help. Thanks.

I recently bought an Epson CX9400FAX printer to replace an older one. In the past I have saved a bundle of money by refilling my Epson cartridges. Now I've been told that you can't refill the cartridges for this model as there is some sort of code that kicks in when the cartridge is empty and if refilled still talls the printer it is empty. I've discussed this with refill stores and some say they are working to find a way to overcome this code but I rather doubt they are really trying. In any case, having to buy new cartrides all the time is very expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Epson CX9400FAX Ink

I used to get all my Epson ink from TylerMartin. Their website looks like it was made in 1997, but their service has always been great. I didn't see yours listed but you might want to see if anything they do have is compatible and they just haven't updated for the 9400 yet. If you don't see anything I'd suggest emailing them to see if they are planning on getting any in. USA.htm

Hi Everybody,,

Since I started using Refillable Cartridges , and the Bulk ink

Every time I Print something I get the Epson Warning below.

Before changing to Refillable Cartridges, I used Generic Cartridges...
and I only ever got the Warning when I First replaced the Cartridge,

Now I get it every time I want to Print something,

I cannot Line up 2 or 3 Print Jobs , without being there to Cancel the Warning .it comes up every time. I can no longer just Click Print and leave.

The New Refillable have Auto Reset chips (reset when nearly empty ) in them ...

I would be quite happy if the Popup Warning only came when the Chip Reset.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R310

Does anybody know of a way to stop this Warning , ...

Thankyou Ron .

A:Epson Pop up Warning?

As the error message mention it detect as a non original cartridges and printers nowadays are very secure about that and when you put and non original one it will send message everytime for the printer protection first as a non original cartridges can damage the printer.

I think you will need to buy a new cartridges and that time an original one or you will get the message everytime.

I bought a new CX7400 Epson printer and cannot successfully install it. After the disc programs, driver installation and software installation complete, a Found New Equipment window emerges. The wizard tries to help with the hardware installation only to tell me it can't find the software for this printer. I tried everything including a manual install but I have reached the point where I keep going around in a circle. It does not say anything about an old driver only that the software is not installed. Anyone have a fix, Zeroscape?

A:CX7400 Epson Printer Installation

use the wizard, when the found new hardware wizard pops up, you should select "have disk" then select the location for the driver, from the disk. Or.....

Here is the correct driver in case yours is out of date
(depends on operating system)

You can download the driver to your desktop. Select "add hardware" through the control panel. Select Printer -> Epson -> select your model if there

When asked where the driver is for this software select have disk, and then navigate to the location that you downloaded the driver to.

Hi guys. I didnīt find a printers section on the forum so i hope someone could help me out here. See, i have this old stylus color II printer. It printed well since it was here about 8 years (man this thing is older, i guess 1995 but still rocks)...a few months ago i printed 2 book with it (thats its normal task, to print some books i often like) but i used refilled generic cartridges from a loooooong time ago since this cartridges are not manufactured any longer. So, it started printing blury at the end...and i kept that way. I've cleaned the head about 30 times and still prints missaligned dots and i cant get it to print clear as it was doing 200 pages before. I dont thing head is dead, i know its clogged but i cant manage to get it clean again. Any suggestions?

Also, Office Max claims that they can't refill these cartridges. What's up with that?

Simple question that the Epson website was unable to help with [lousy support]. I have an old Epson Stylus 640 and when I print a page I get an "ID" type of thing printed out at the top of the page and at the bottom of the page. Question: How can I stop it from doing it and just print what it is supposed to print? Say I want to print something from a web page and there are 5 pages, every damn page has the stupid ID on it! Is there a way to control this?

I have to say I didn't read all of these entries, but perhaps you can find a "fix" here:

Printing dates on documents

Q. I listen to your show faithfully every weekend. I am a lawyer who needs to have the date appear at the bottom of anything that I print for a case. Since getting a new printer, I no longer get the date. I tried calling technical support but they were no help. I hardly understood a word the reps said. Can you please lend a hand? Susan Jones

A. Sure I can. I?ll just refer to you as ?Sue the lawyer.?

Having the date appear on your printouts is pretty handy. Most programs let you add a date in some way. Let?s go through some programs you may be using.

Microsoft Word Click where you want to place the date. Click Insert>>Date and Time. You will have a selection of choices--date only, time only and date and time. Choose one and click OK.

You can make Word insert dates in all documents automatically.

To do that, you must change the Word template. That is a file named

You'll find it in these folders:

Windows XP
C:\Document and Settings\[Your Name]\Application

Windows 2000
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application

Windows ME
C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

Windows 98
C:\Windows\Profiles\[Your Name]\Application DataMicrosoft\Templates

If you can't find it, use Windows Explorer to search for it.

Once you do find it, make a copy of and save it in another folder, in case you make a mistake. Then right-click and click Open. Click View>>Header and Footer. Click in the footer box at the end of the template. Click Insert>>Date and Time. Select the date style. Click "Update automatically." Click OK.

Microsoft Excel
Click View>>Header and Footer. Click Custom Footer. Enter the date.

You can make a template in Excel, too. Open an Excel worksheet and put in the footer (or header) along with the date. Click File>>Save As. Save it as a Template (*.xlt). It goes in the same folder as the Word template. Make a shortcut to the Excel template and put it on the desktop. You have to open the template specifically to get the dated worksheet.

Internet Explorer
Click File>>Page Setup. In the box marked Footer, enter "&d" (without the quotes). All subsequent printouts will include the date, which changes automatically.

(Tip inside of a tip: You can print a number of things in the header or footer. To find the codes, click File>>Page Setup. In the upper right corner, next to the X, click the question mark. Then click the Header or Footer box.)

Click File>>Page Setup. Select Margins&Header/ Footer. Under Headers and Footers, find the position in which you wish to place the date. If this is a one-shot thing, click Custom and write in the date. If you want the date to be there always, and to update automatically, click Date/Time.

Credits to:
Maybe you can reverse some of these processes- since the writer wanted to ADD dates.
Hope this helps.

A:Several questions regarding my Epson Stylus c84

You can go through the ink cartridge replacement thing through epson status monitor and just pop your old ones out and put them back in, that sometimes tricks it into thinking there is still more left in the cartridge. It works most of the time for me, but you do run out for real shortly after.

As far as buying cheap ink, I've ordered a lot of cheap ink from for various epson printers. They are great for printing out stuff for yourself or papers to turn in if you are a student. I would not recommend them for photos, the color is usually fine but the problem arises over time - the ink fades in color, espically in sunlight, much more so than Epson branded ink. Perhaps the kind you are looking at won't do that, but if it smells like rubbing alcohol when it comes out of the printer I wouldn't use it for photos.

I can't answer the cartridge capacity part.

You overlooked something.... resolution

The problem is solved.... Two problems..... I had forgotten to sign on as an administrator, so it would give me an error every time. I signed on as administrator in my system win2k and I then began to remove all the epson applications. The printer software, however, is listed together in the add/remove program section and I had several epson entries. I was inadvertently trying to remove an epson c860 which has been dead for awhile. It gave me a window to reply , but it was hidden under other windows. When I discovered it, I realized that when I asked to remove the epson printer it was pointing to c860 instead of the cx6600. When I didn't reply to the small window to confirm c860 removal, it seemed to go off into lala land, so I would just cancel the whole thing. AFter I pointed to the right printer (cx6600 series), it removed it, but gave no indication that it did. I checked the register and all references to it were removed, so I proceeded to install the printer again. This time it worked, and everything is o.k.

Do any of you guys have expierence using these? Last time I replaced the cartridges in my Epson 760 I had a hell of a time getting it to print right again, I think I did the head cleaning and nozzle alignment like 4 or 5 times before it cleared up. The company I order all my ink from (cause I can get them for $2.95 for black and $4.95 for color) sells cleaning cartridges for just a bit more.
I was just wondering if these things are worth it? My printer is working fine now, but if it gets bad again and these work it might be worth it.

A:Epson Printer Cleaning Cartridges

I have an Epson 900, and I too have had problems with the heads becoming blocked.

Personally, I wouldn't bother with cleaning cartridges because you're not supposed to remove and refit ink tanks on Epson printers (the seals are use once only).

This essentially means that you should only be using the cleaning cartridges when it comes time to replace your ink tanks. However, your print heads are likely becoming blocked while the ink tanks are still full, due to not using your printer for long periods.

That being the case, together with the fact that you are using cheap ink (as I do), I have found it better to simply print a full colour article, such as a web page, every week or so, just to keep the print heads clear. Those head cleaning cartridges are use once just like your ink cartridges, so I don't feel they are worth getting. If your print heads ever become dried out, then not even a cleaning cartridge will unblock them.

I'm sure that you've already heard the saying 'use it, or lose it'. That applies to Epson printers more than to others, as the print heads are separate from the ink tanks, and are designed to last the life of your printer.

Edit: When you fit new ink tanks, then try and do it quickly to prevent the heads from drying. Your printer should go through a priming process once the new tanks are fitted, so you shouldn't be getting problems with blocked heads due to fitting new ink tanks.

I cant seem to find drivers anywhere on the net for the above named printer.

Has anyone else had this printer working in XP?

Would it be worth me installing drivers for the 440 as that is supported in xp?

A:Espon Stylus Color 460 in XP?

Windows XP has built-in drivers for older Epson printers, and they are just as good as the original Epson drivers. If your printer has a USB connection, then that would be the best way to connect it and installation of drivers will be automatic. If you are using parallel connection, then you'll have to add a new printer manually using the 'add printer' wizard (just right-click in the printer and faxes folder and select the wizard). The Epson 460 driver is available in WinXP Sp1, I just checked.

After many hours of attempting to figure out why, I logged onto and asked the question. There support people gave me a number of things to do, which most I already had. They said to go to 'Services' and stop and start the WIA program, which i did but still no luck. I have loaded the RX620 drivers on two other computers and it works fine. I can't figure out what would cause it not to work on this one computer. It is running WindowsXP, SP3. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What happens if you just reboot with the printer plugged in? Just leave it in all the time.

The only reason Epson tells you to do all their crap and then plug in the printer is so that the drivers will already be on your local hard drive so XP shoudl find the drivers when the printer is connected. So since you've already done that step, just restart with the printer already connected and on.

Hi Friends.

If i am not in the right sub-forum, then please move it to the correct position (thx)

I would like to keep my Epson Perfection 1640SU Scanner and therefore i would like to know how to install the proper driver. The Epson sites only provides an stone-old Vista 32 Bit driver. The driver installs without any message, and i even can select the Scanner in the Twain Menu in my Paint Program, but when pressing on the startbutton then comes "An error occures while trying to open the Data Source". Hardware Manager says "No Driver installed"....I'm gettin' mad...

I am using Windows 7 PRO - 64Bit (full, no RC) and need a little help from you.


A:Epson Perfection 1640SU - Driver Problem

I've just been to the site and expanded the vista 32 bit driver and it seems as though the driver is not a signed driver, and therefore wouldnt install on W7 64BIT OS you could try the Twain driver version 5.53A it seems to be a signed one - to make this possible you will have to install it in compatibility mode with xp otherwise it wont install, because of a OS mismatch, also note it says on the site the scanner has to be disconnected from the pc while installing the driver, anyhow to install the driver do the following :
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.
Otherwise you will have to turn off signed driver checking which is not recommended - you can find instructions for this by typing something similar to this in the forum search .
I have just found out 32 bit drivers wont install on a 64 bit OS in any case

For some reason, my scanner on my Epson is not working, but printing works. I did a driver Update, and nothing. In the Epson setting, the Epson even manager for scan can find the scanner, but  when I check the Epson Scan settings, it says the scanner is ready. I tried to install the scanner soley, but it did nothing.
I did a troubleshoot for devices in Microsoft's Device  and Printers it says that its a USB 2.0 and not a 3.0. I haven't had a problem with the 2.0 for scanning. I switch out to another USB device and says the same thing.
My Version is Windows 8.

This driver set should install the printer with the correct name and in the the correct registry location.

While the drivers work fine for me, I take no responsibility for its effects on your system or registry. Use at your own risk/discretion. Drop me a PM if you have any questions!

Hi all,

Here is my situation: I have used that scanner on my computer without problems for some time. Then, I believe I might have uninstalled the drivers because we put this PC to a different use, but now I have it back as my main computer, and the drivers just won't install properly, they appear to be in place but the scanner is not detected by the system. I've tried both the Vista driver and the older one designed for XP, neither of them are working (I've tried that because when I was getting that scanner to work with Windows 7, quite surprisingly Vista's version did not work, but XP's did (there was no specific Win7 version available).

I have Vista Ultimate 32-bit.

Hello, I am having problems getting my windows computer to recognize my Epson TM-T20II receipt printer. I recently updated the computer to Windows 10 and it caused the last receipt printer to stop working. Due to trouble figuring out which make and model that printer was I purchased this new(er) printer that should work with Windows 10. As it stands now the printer driver has been installed and the computer now recognizes the printer as unspecified. I contacted Epson and with their help I was able to get that far. I cannot get it to print a test page or become available as a printer at all. It also is not recognized in my POS (Quickbooks 2013). Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Did you download drivers from here??

The Stylus Pro 7600 is now a really old printer, the last supported driver was for XP but it worked in Windows 7 and I believe to some extent in 8 although I never did try it.

It s a really good reliable large format printer though and very affordable in parts, ink and the second-hand purchase price.

However alas Windows 10 doesn't like it, I did the upgrade to 10 (and then the downgrade) from windows 7 but it will not see the driver it sees the device but calls it a USB high speed device or something like that and compatibility mode didn't seem to help.

So unless there is a clever work around and I'd love that to happen I'm stuck on Windows 7 for the duration.

Suggestions welcome.

A:Epson Stylus pro 7600 - Driver doesn't work

No cleverness here, and I don't have such a printer, but...

Have you tried the drivers for Vista?

Epson Stylus Pro 7600 - Photographic Dye Ink, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.

These are for the dye-based version. I didn't look to see whether the Ultrachrome based one uses different drivers.

(There are also 32 bit Windows.) If they don't want to install, you could try right clicking on the installer and running the Troubleshoot Compatibility tool.

Good luck.

I'm running Windows 7 RC x 64. Everything about the Epson Photo R1800 seems perfect, except it doesn't show the remaining ink levels when printing or when checking via Status Monitor. (Rather, on the latter, it just sits there saying "searching....") All the other, somewhat complex, features of the R1800 work fine, including selecting paper profiles, etc.

I'm pretty certain that everyting worked with 7 (7000) x64. I've reinstalled the Epson drivers, running it in Vista compatability mode, to no avail.

Since the printer has 8 separate ink cartridges, waiting for the "low ink" light on the printer (which won't tell me which cartridge) isn't a very appealing alternative. Any ideas?

A:Epson Status Monitor - Can't Check Ink Levels

You could try running the Status Monitor app in compatability mode & see if that helps. I used to have an epson printer & that ran status monitor so i'm only presuming that it's still the same.

Hope it helps

I have a new Epson xp-630 printer. I installed the software from the original cd, and everything works fine except for the print cd. I get a message the no driver has been installed.
I installed it right from the cd, and also I removed the software from the pc, and the printer and started fresh with the package from the Epson support website. Still, the same message.
I was on the phone with Epson for 2 hours with no results. I disabled my virus protection, and still no success. Can anyone help me.
PS, I have a Mac also, and it works fine from the mac. Thanks.

Vista came in 2006 and Windows 10 in 2016.
Try Installing the Driver in compatiablity mode.Right click the Driver setup file and select properties>compatiablity>Run this in Windows vista.
50-50 chances that it should work.

Hi does anyone know or think the 64 bit 8.1 drivers for my printer may work for Win 10? (64 bit)
Epson does not offer Win 10 drivers
Some sites offer the drivers but I try not to download things from sites I do not trust
It could be the 8.1 drivers in disguise or malware or who knows what?
Thanks for any ideas

A:Epson Printer Drivers for Win 10?

You could try and add the printer via devices and printers and see if Windows can find the driver - this worked for my Epson printer when I set it up with my computer. Otherwise - try the 8.1 drivers and see if they work - odds are they will.

I can't seem to clean my "black" head on my printer. I tried the "clean" funtion, several times, but still get "vertical" lines. I used the "re-align" to select the best print out, but I can't seem to get it just right. I do a "nozzel check', and I can see why the head is clogged. It is a bad printout of the black only. Any suggestions other then what I did to resolve this issue. Thanks.

ever since I had a new hard drive installed on my Toshiba Satellite I cannot make a connection to my printer. I was on Epson Tech support for almost 3 hours, and they told me the printer is fine, and I am connected to it, but there is something blocking the print job from going to the printer. anyone else encountering this problem?
I forgot to mention that when they installed the hard drive, they upgraded my wind. 7 to Wind. 10. Before this I had no problems printing!

Hi if you have disc for your printer
Then I would completely uninstall all traces of it from your computer
Including program files in C Drive
Then do a restart so that all traces of printer gone.
Insert disc and let it install

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

Couldn't find a good spot for this so I'll ask here...

I have an Epson XP800 inkjet that I bought a few years ago and barely use, maybe 20 pages a year. But that doesn't stop the ink from going away. It's so annoying.

Is this normal? Should I move to laser for low volume printing without the cost of cartridges every 6 months?

A:Epson printer using lots of ink

Your experience is one of the reasons I won't have an Epson product anymore, other than for target practice (a scanner that had to be frequently retimed and had lousy software is the other reason). However, any inkjet that doesn't get used frequently is prone to clogged heads due to the ink drying out in them. The printers clear the heads by pumping large amount s of ink through them to blast out the dried ink. Sadly, frequent head clogging, and the subsequent high consumption of ink, is normal for inkjets not used frequently.

Laser printers, on the other hand, do not have that problem. Normally, they can set for weeks or more at a time without being used, then will print something without even a quiet belch. Even though the up front cost is higher aand toner cartridges aren't exactly cheap, the per copy cost is usually much, much less than for inkjets. Also, laser printer printouts will not run if they get wet, unlike most inkjet printouts.

Once you decide to get a laser printer (assuming you do), the next question is whether to get a color laser or B&W. One advantage inkjets do have over laser printers is they will print much better looking photos, when printed on photo paper, than laser printers although the more recent laser color prints do surprisingly well. If you have no real need for color printouts and or rarely make photo prints, it would be more cost effective to just get a B&W laser printer and farm out any photos you need printing to photo labs, such as the ones some pharmacies and Wally World (Walmart) have. Of course, you may be willing to pay the extra cost for color printouts (like I was); that will still be more cost effective than using an inkjet in your situation.

If I were to go out an buy a new laser printer today, I would get one of the better Brothers. Be sure to check on tray capacity, both the main tray (magazine) and the manual feed tray styles and capacities when making your decision since not all are made the same. For example, my Samsung (which I do not recommend due mostly to poor documentation and worthless customer service) has a manual feed tray that is rated for only one sheet at a time (though I have gotten away with two or three at a time). Smaller media is a bit dicy to keep aligned. The manual feed tray in the better Brothers can handle up to ten sheets at a time and can handle most smaller media just fine.

Cost of consumables, mostly toner cartridges, will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The Lexmarks are pure highway robbery. HP is notorious for discontinuing support on products relatively early, especially when a new OS comes down the cyber pike, and has been known to dramatically increase the price of older consumables. I've yet to hear anything good about Canon and Xerox laser printers (although Canon makes some pretty good scanners). Brothers and Samsung toner cartridges are generally reasonable when you consider the cost per page.

Hi I've repeatedly attempted this but always get driver "An installation V550 occurred error setup" Epson during An error occurred during setup Restart your computer Epson V550 driver installation "An error occurred during setup" then run setup again This is an all too typical message you can find associated with many Epson products I've tried Clean boot Safe mode install enabled Using an Epson removal tool I finally obtained after my th chat with Epson An Epson fix deleting temp folder and looking for setup Epson V550 driver installation "An error occurred during setup" exe that never appeared On my th chat I was advised to consult Microsoft Manually removing all Epson folders and registry entries I can find Disabling firewall and AV The same CD installed ok on my year-old laptop both run Windows x I've found a couple of other fixes found by someone looking at the log file I've run SFC Scannow - ok At best the scanner is recognised as being connected when plugged in and appears with a yellow trangle under 'Other Devices' in Device Manager Any ideas welcome - I'd like to use my new scanner Thanks

A:Epson V550 driver installation "An error occurred during setup"

Hi, I've found a solution, albeit a tad obscure. Short story:
1. Install the driver normally, noting it fails, and the device is recognised when plugged in and appears in Device Manager under 'Other devices' with a yellow triangle.
2. There right click the device, update driver and browse to the CD used to install the driver initially, and to the driver folder.
Let the update run.

The scanner should now be installed.


which offers another approach too.

There are quite a few reports of Epson driver installations (various devices) failing with this message. Epson chat eventually referred me to Microsoft.... saying the original message was a Windows error.

A:aspire r7-372t stylus buttons not working

I haven't bought a r7-372t yet although its on my short list.   One of the issues I had with the one I looked at at microcenter is the same problem you are having.   I believe its a synaptics digitizer so I tried a Dell Active Stylus (for synaptics) and the Acer stylus.  Both behaved the same way on the r7 in the store. Basically when you put the pen close to the screen you get a over cursor... but touching the pen to the screen doesn't draw in drawing apps or select anything like a tap... and the buttons have no effect.   So its recognizes that the pen is there but doesn't do anything with it.  I read somewhere that Acer might have a newer pen that is required for this model but I haven't seen anything concrete on that. I have noticed that a lot of PCs seem to have synaptics compatible screens but not fully implemented or included on their feature list.  For example... hold a synaptics pen up to a HP pavilion 13 2-in-1 screen and you will see the hover cursor then it will crash the video driver... every time.    So the hover cursor appearing doesn't necessarily mean its supported or fully implemented.  Although it would be a real shame if they took out that feature.   The easl screen is perfect for drawing.
