New printer wont install.

have just bought a cheapie from warehouse Epson.tried to install it but wont go, do I have to uninstall the old Epsom!

Uninstall all old epson software, and the new install
restart your pc
Make sure the USB cable between the new printer and PC is removed.
Install the CD of software supplied ONLY CONNECT the printer when prompted too otherwise windows will mess up trying to install its own drivers.
Best of luck

uninstall the old one then install the new one.but you dont need to as you just make the new one the default
did you get a disc or are you just asking the computer to find it

no we got a disc with the new one, also the old one had a disc as well.

thank you for your help.

do I just go to add and remove programmes! and remove all the Epsom stuff!

Yes. remove any old Epson programs and any new installs. START A FRESH. Install the suppiled CD and ONLY Connect the printer via USB when prompted too.

as above
Just do what you are prompted to do from the install disc and you shouldnt have any problems

As they always say.
" If all else fails read the instructions"

Do you know how to read instructions or follow prompts.

Do not have printer connected to PC at this point. Insert disc. Follow steps, at one point it will tell you to plug the printer into the PC.
