Epson LQ 570 ESC/P2 Print Garbled/Win 98
Posted on 1998-12-02
Okay I'm ready to pull my hair out. I have a computer that I just installed Windows 98 (full version) from a formatted FAT 32 hard drive. I have installed the Epson Printer (LQ 570 ESC/P2) as it is the appropriate printer, however, whenever I print, it is garbled. It doesn't matter if I uninstall it, reinstall it, try to print from Notepad a few text words (to check if its just the program), and it wont print correctly at the MSDOS Prompt when I use the dir >lpt1 command. Garbled language, that's all I get. Why is this doing this to me???
Why download a new driver when I have the newest Windows 98 CD that already has that driver on it? Has anyone else had the same problem? Help ....
