Installing printer problem

I have been trying to reinstall my Epson Stylus Photo RX510 since the
Mobo died. The scanner works ok but I haven't been able to print with
the printer.

Today I tried to print with the Epson and got the message that it has
been deleted. I clicked the option to install and the monitor went to
standby but the computer continued processing image files.

When the USB HDD  light indicated that the processing had finished I
pressed the starter button for 4 seconds but the computer didn't
switch off,  it rebooted. I got the message "overclocking failed!
Please enter Setup to re-configure your system, Press F1 to Run Setup,
F2 to load default values and continue

I have never overclocked, I wouldn't know how.

Also, in the BIOS USB mass storage device configuration the Epson
Stylus is

Device #2            Epson Stylus storage
Emulation  Type            [Auto]

What is happening?

Re: Installing printer problem

Not a clue. Sort of sounds like you are mixing up a lot of
unrelated items. Proper sequence for setting up the printer
is to first uninstall anything associated with it ... drivers,
anything you can find. Then unplug the USB cable from
the printer. Put the driver cd in the drive, and find the proper
driver on the cd ... explore the cd to do it. Reboot the
computer, and bring it up. Then plug in the printer usb
cable .... when the install asks for the driver, browse to the
driver on the cd for your OS, and select it. That should
be all that is needed unless the on-printer config is
somehow pointing to the parallel port. Check that, and
make sure you have USB selected if necessary. Some
older printers are bad for that. Also, don't install all that
other poop on the cd ... just the driver.
