unable to print to epson lq-590 dot matrix printer from win7 machine.  Old dot matrix died.  Installed new one out of the box.  Win7 found it.  Installed drivers.  But cannot print..  It also does not see the tractor feed in the properties.  It spools disappears.  No response from printer.
Need to print 50 BOL today.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

How you printer is connected ? UDB or LTP port ?
If LTP try print from command line, this option not require any drivers.

TYPE   "some test" >LPT1

Check if is working
check if the printer is shown correct in devices and printers, and set as default - and online
if that is ok, tell us how it is connected - with usb, you mayy have to redo the install
