    Hi can anyone help ive been trying for month to solve this issue. I purchased two acer desktop computers for my kids printer and monitor included, when i tried to install the epson printer that came with it an error message appeared could not install driver for which i had a cd, then i tried downloading the drivers still no go, this happened with my brand new hp c7280 all in one as well, I have uninstalled and installed so many times that I just want to take these two brand new acer aspire and throw them in the street. I have emailed there websites both hp and acer and epson and followed all of ther instructions but still i can't figue it out. when i update the drivers from the web msg, driver download complete, when i check the device manager and click on the printer properties to update drivers msg, drivers are already installed and that this devise is working properly, but its not. can anyone help? if so thank you in advance.

    What operating System are you using XP or Vista?

    Check in services

    Click start>>Run>>type services.msc and click OK....check in the list that Print Spooler is started and set to Automatic
