    I have epson colour stylus 580 printer. Worked O.K on WIN/ME o.k.

    I am now using WinXP Pro o/s on a new PC.

    I downloaded WINXP driver from Epson site, procceded to install, all went well until a box popped up saying, "This has not been digitally signed", but you can procceed to install.

    Installation completed, printer does not work!

    HELP!

    Welcome to TSG....

    Did you click OK to finish the installation?

    If you did and it went thru and finished and does not work I would suggest re downloading the driver again and then remove the old one and its install file and go thru the installation again

    I went to epson and they did not show a driver for windows xp

    If you were using one of these then this is why it does not work.

    There is a windows compatibility mode you may be able to use but I know not how to use it. I would check the help files for directions.

    Did you click OK to finish the installation?= YES!

    AFTER INSTALL WAS COMPLETED A BLURB APPEARED AND SAID" YOUR HARDWARE HAS BEEN INSTALLED AND IS READY TO USE!........YEAH,...RIGHT!

    If you did and it went thru and finished and does not work I would suggest re downloading the driver again and then remove the old one and its install file and go thru the installation again.= DID THAT 3 TIMES!

    I went to epson and they did not show a driver for windows xp=[COLOR......"red"]YES THEY DO! = SEE EPSON 10054.EXE[/COLOR]
    There is a windows compatibility mode you may be able to use but I know not how to use it. NOR DO I BRO: SO WHERE TO FROM HERE?!

    BEST REGARDS.

    For one thing I realize you are just trying to answer me but I do have a slight vision problem and have a bit of trouble seeing all caps and especially in red. It sort of makes me feel like I am being yelled at in Red. No need for it. thank you.

    Since the driver apparently did not work and it should have have you checked out the FAQ's on Epsons site? If there is nothing there then I was wondering if the printer has a USB input/output connector as well as the parallel one? If it does try a USB cable.

    Sorry about the red, not shouting, just emphasizing!

    To reiterate, when the prog was loading, there was a warning that it did not have a "Microsoft Signature",.................So, could you explain to me what that means first?

    It then asked me to connect the printer, it then tells me that the "Hardware is now ready for use,............which it isn't!

    The printer connects by a USB lead, which I have swapped with a proven working USB lead.
    It still does not work, also rebooting the pc to make sure the prog is loaded at start up, and yes, I did a warm boot, and a cold boot, still not working.

    Also, the original printer USB Lead I have tried on my scanner, which uses the same type of lead, and that works o.k.

    There is no parallel output from the printer, just a USB connection.

    Regards.

    Ken.

    PS, If it's any help, I have had the same sort of problem before with XP in the past when the "Not signed" message pops up with various other bits of eqipment is installed.

    did not have a "Microsoft Signature" = Just means that the driver was not or did not have a digital signature. I have a couple like that and they work OK

    USB - OK did you have the USB cable connected when you ran the installation or setup program to install the printer?

    If so then remove the printer driver and pull the USB connector out of the back of the printer. Reboot the computer and with the USB connector still disconnected install the printer driver software, when the installation wants the USB cable connected it will ask for it or if it does not then re-connect it after the last reboot.

    Thanks ozrome1e,

    As I have said to "Bonk", I have installed numerous printers int the past on Win98/98SE/win ME/ & xp with no problems! This not the first time this has cropped up in the past.

    Yes, I have tied all the uninstalling, etc, etc, as you have described in your mail, with lead not connected & not connected!

    If you had read my past mails you would have seen that I waited until the program told me to plug in printer lead!

    This one has got me beat!
    Thats why I contacted you guys!

    Regards,

    Ken.
