Intel P4 531 3.0Ghz/ MSI PM8M3-V H/ 512MB DDR400/ XP PRO SP2
Here's the thing I tried installing this printer (epson c59) on my friends PC and it worked well with his. To test more, I borrowed a different printer (epson c90) and tested it on my machine I was shock to realized that the same thing is happening, long printing time, sometimes undetected and not responding. At this point I'm beginning to think that my windows is causing some problems but I cannot further more test it because everything seems to be normal except for the printer ofcourse. I've got Avira Personal antivirus installed and no virus was detected (but I doubt it)
I also observed that when it started to print I see the status "spooling or spool" in the printer window alongside the document printing. It just pauses there for about 5 minutes or less then it prints after.
I also tried this, checking the cable (fine) used sfc /scannow done! repair install windows ( successful but no help) I also used different USB ports on the machine (same scenario). Bought a new power supply because I see some abnormalities with the voltage reading but now the reading is ok. Reinstalled the driver many times, I also used uninstaller programs to wipe the driver out of my PC. Reinstalled Office 2003. All this but to no prevail. I really need your help guys! T_T Hope someone can assisst me. Tnx and more power!
Ooops! I forgot to mention I cannot reinstall Windows because I have a delicate program that must not be remove. I have no setup files or installer for this. The program was custom made just for us. And I cannot contact the programmer who developed it because he's already dead (sad to say it). tnx again.
