Can't install Epson SX100

During install, when I plug the USB cable in, the 'Found new Hardware Wizard' starts then reports that it can not install this device - "The parameter is incorrect'. The wizard reports the device correctly as Epson Stylus SX100. I am using winXP. Epson Support have told me that this is a WINXP problem and that there is a fix for it - something to do with a hard drive conflict. I can't find any problem listed in the MS Knoledge base. Has anyone come across this problem and know the fix? I have installed the printer on a differnt computer OK.

    I have further info on this problem. It appears not to be the printer. I have tried another printer on the paralell port and I get the same error. All other USB devices work fine. I have tried the printer on another PC with the same motherboard and almost identicle build; it gives the same error. But another PC using a different motherboard works fine. The board in question is a Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 so I am trying Gigabyte's support page.

    In one portable PC, running Windows XP Home, the procedure for installing the printer's drive doesn't stop for asking to connect the printer's USB cable, but it suddenly ends with a message like "Installation OK".

    Instead, the installation of the drive is NOT OK at all, and the printer doesn't work.

    Must be noted that the scanner mounted on the printer DOES work.

    In other PC the problem doesn't exist.

    When ths Epson SX100 drivers are installed one shall plug in the USB cable. When I do the printer is not recognized, the printer cannot be found. However, the printer IS plugged in, Windows finds it, the new hardware wizard starts. But you cannot install the printer via the Windows hardware wizard because the USB port is not created.

referring to :

Hi re epson printer SX115 - red light flashing - error being reported - P/C does not recognize printer rgds chris

I suggest you uninstall the printer and restart your computer. Plug in the printer and if the computer recognises it allow the found hardware wizard to install it. If it doesn't recognise the printer when it is plugged in I suggest you assume the printer is faulty.

Please help me. I have a Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7825 Laptop with Vista. Can you Pleaseinstruct me on how to set up my Epson Stylus C84 printer---express Code 70445

The driver is included in your OS. If doing a wired connection, just plug the data cable into the printer. Then follow the on-screen commands (New Hardware Found Wizard). If that doesn't launch, click Start > Control Panel > Printer (under Hardware and Sound). Click Add A Printer to launch the wizard. (If you do not see this command, right click in the Printer Window and you should find it.) Select Use Existing Port, Next, Epson and Stylus C84 in manufacturer and model, Next. Then Set As Default printer if desired and Next. Then you can print a test page and Finish. (If you are using a print server or other type of networked printer, use the Add a Printer Wizard from the Printer window but choose Network.)

Ink levels available through the Printer Properties. Epson Easy Print is available for Vista here: .

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(problems with print servers can due to OS incompatibility or bad cables. Replace cables when any printer problem occurs intermittently.)

Pleease reinstall printer driver after installin AIO 966 driver

There must be some misunderstanding. Let me give some hints, First, remove the cartridges, unplug the power cable and the usb cable. Now power on your printer and leave it for few minutes. Again, plug/reinsert them and power on (make sure you connect the usb to the printer as well as on the computer usb port). If you get a small window "Found New Hardware Wizard" then insert you cd into the cd/dvd rom. Select "No Not this Time only" from the "Found New Hardware" wizard and click "next" then select "Install from a list or specific location" click "Next", check the "include this location in the search" click "browse" and manually search the driver to you Cd rom directory. After you locate the driver, click "Ok" then "next", the wizard will search and install the driver and click "finish" when it's done. Do let me know if this helps or not.

Epson Stylus ->NOT plugged into electricity, ->NOT plugged into the computer with the USB cable, and Windows running on your computer.

1.Place the CD disk that came with your Epson Stylus in your CD or DVD drive. Install the contents to your computer. Restart your computer.
->NOW, plug the USB cable of your Epson into your computer. Plug your Epson into power.
If you hear the Epson setting up, wait until it has finished, before pressing the Power On button.
Press the Power On button of your Epson Stylus. You should get a "Found New Hardware" pop-up, out of your task bar tray at the bottom of your desktop screen.

IF, you have already connected the USB cable from the Epson to your computer, and turned the Epson on, BEFORE you installed the software from the CD, you have to start over.

You have to wipe off the Epson software First, before you do.

Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
After Add/Remove Programs has fully loaded,
(Please wait for the list to be populated), scroll down through the list, and -> Remove <- anything you see listed with the Epson name.
It will ask if you wish to restart your computer at this time. Yes! Restart your computer.

After Windows has loaded, follow what I have printed in number 1 above.

Cant install canon ip90 printer. Downloaded driver not found by wizard.

Do this:

In XP default view, from the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes, and then double-click Add Printer.

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.
Uncheck all options except

Specify a Location.
Click Browse.
Browse the folder where you have your downloaded driver

If the driver not match you have a wrong driver.
In that case go back to Canon and get the right one and do the same procedure again.

Have a great day
Pablo :-)

Trying to install HP C4280, fatal error comes up during installation and will not complete

To install that printer, connect the data cable (Maybe USB?) to the PC and follow the instructions on the "New Hardware found" wizard, then supply the CD that came with the printer and make the wizard look for the drivers there. When the HP install program pops up (Gray sandglass), choose "Decline" or "Not agree" to the terms of the license and continue with the "New hardware wizard" installation.
The printer driver will get installed and none of the HP useless programs.
