Have new computer with Windows XP Pro. Upon startup error message comes up stating. Epson printer port. At least one service or driver failed during system startup. Use Event viewer to examine the event log for details. Event viewer no help. Just takes you to microsoft site and no answers for problem. HaveEPSON Stylus C62 printer. Printer works great except error message at startup.Would appreciate any help with this problem. Thanks.

Wes, First place to check is the device driver. Right click on My Computer/Properties. Go to the Device Manager tab. Find your printer and right click/Properties. See if it is using a Windows driver or an Epson driver. If it is a windows driver, go to Epson.com and look for a driver to install that is compatible with Win XP. Also look at driverguide.com

Hope this helps, Lou
