I just upgraded my computor windows 7. And it deleted my epson 1280 printer. How do get it back.

Some older printers don't have a driver (software that tells the PC how to work the printer) for Windows 7. This website is Epson's Support site, and lists a driver that it says is "compatible" with windows vista.

sometimes Vista drivers will work with Windows 7, but not always. Choose either the 32-bit driver for Vista, or the 64-bit driver for vista, depending on which edition of Windows 7 you are using.

If that doesn't work, then you unfortunately either need a new printer, or you need to hook that printer up to a computer that is running Windows vista or older.

I can not get my printer to work. I went from xp to vista and my printer and computer do not see each other. When trying to install the printer the message states that my spooler is not running as well....

Vista has its problems with drivers. If you can get on the internet dowlad and install the Vista drivers for the model of printer you have. Also you can go to control panel and delete this printer out and shut your computer off. Plug printer in and turn the computer on. If it is a plug and play printer the computer should find it and install. You should get a copy of the install disc. Good luck

could you try another cable, maybe the cable is the problem. If not, test the port if it detects other devices. If not disconnect the printer and install first the driver and then when it asks for the printer, hook it up.

Driver issues with vista basic

There are script corrections in Vista Ultimate that other versions of Vista don't have (yet). I have Vista Home Premium, and had to install my printer manually, since Vista incorrectly identified it when I first booted my new computer while hooked up to it. When I tried HP's website, to get the driver to install it, I found that it isn't available, because they simply advise me that in Vista, I don't have to install any drivers, since the drivers for my printer are built into the operating system. That's all well and good, but getting the driver to install automatically wasn't possible. I had to add a printer, and tell Vista that it wasn't connected to my computer so that I could fool it into letting me install the correct printer drivers. It now works, but it seems to me like Microsoft is still the least reliable operating system there is. I'll shut up now. =)

Hooking up printer

Maybe your USB port or USB cable is not working? For sure you need to get the latest drivers for Vista, Try to download the driver from Lexmark website at If that still doesn't work, see if you can get another USB device to connect to your computer - like a USB Flash Drive (or "thumb drive").
