I'm using the one for Vista, from the EPSON website with 100% success.

Hi Jtoolman

I was thinking of trying that, thanx. I wonder if a Vista driver would work for my HP 7660, worth a try I guess.

Open device manager, and select your printer. Then right click and Update Drviers, and let it search the internet.

Hi Lordbob

That funny it is not in the device manager, it is listed in the control panel under printers though.And it says it is installed, but wont do a test page.

Never mind I found it under ports, listed as a ECP printer (LPT1) It says the divers are up to date. But it still wont print, no errors showing either.

Thanx...Gunny

Hi Gang

Just so we are on the same page and trying to find out why it wont print, the printer is connected to my main computer, I have this Win 7Rc installed to a secondary computer. I checked with my main computer to make sure it is ok with sharing, and that seems ok, and the computer is turned on. Every thing looks ok on the sec computer the Epson is set as the default printer, and I assume the drivers are installed ok. I get no errors, it just wont print.

Thanx...Gunny
