Install the drivers BEFORE connecting the printer to the PC. You may have
to uninstall and then reinstall.

Hi I followed your link and it didn't work as soon as I reboot and switch the
printer on it starts to load the drivers from XP! I end up with 2 sets of
printer drivers!

Follow the steps in the article.

DISCONNECT the printer. UNINSTALL the software.

Reboot the PC. Do NOT reconnect the printer to the PC.

Install the software from the manufacturer and do NOT reconnect the printer
UNTIL THE SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO.

There are no other drivers for XP for this very discontinued printer! There
is a Status Monitor package at the Epson website, but no other printer
drivers for XP. The ones built in are the ONLY ones you should be using.
Drivers that came with your printer will be drivers for Windows 9x operating
systems (Windows 95, 98, 98se and ME) which WILL NOT WORK with XP.
