Epson Status Monitor 3 Is Not Working


I have a epson tx110 printer and i keep getting the message "epson status monitor 3 is not working and will be closed down. " I contacted epson and they say it is my windows home basic vista that is causing it not to work. But i can't seem to find any answers to the problem. In the meantime, i can't use my printer as it will not let me get into the ink tanks, even when i disconnect it from the computer. Can anybody help here?

What Is Status.msi?

I keep getting a pop-up that says the feature you are trying to use in on a network that is unavailable. Then a popup that says wait while windows configures status, then a pop-up that says please reinstall using a valid copy of the installation package "status. Msi" then it starts this whole procedure all over again. When i reboot the same things happens. I can't get rid of this. I don't know what program to reinstall that will get rid of this problem. I am not on a network. The only thing that is used in conjunction with another used is the router and modem.

Lost Administrator Status

I stupidly followed some instructions i found on line so that i wouldn't have to type my administrator password each time i logged on but in the process, i can no longer access the administrator account. I am now logged on as a guest account. When i go to user accounts and try to "manage another account" to switch to the administrator account, the dialog box asks me to type in the administrator password but there is nowhere to do so. I don't seem to have any way to access the administrator account. Is there any way to fix this short of reinstalling windows 7?

Remove Styling On Printer Status Dialog

Just had a pretty hideous user experience which is a shame given how great windows 7 has been. I've just installed a printer (hp f4272). I didn't bother with the hp cd, just connected and let windows load the drivers it required. This worked fine.

The problem occurred within the. For want of a better word i'll call the printer options window. If i go to start -> devices and printers -> hp deskjet f2000 series rather than seeing the current status of print jobs i have an extra in between window that gives me printing and scanning options.

The first time i entered that window just below the address bar breadcrumb was a message asking if i'd like to update the information (sorry i can't remember the error as i was expecting windows to ask if i wanted the driver updated), to the link to the windows help associated with the message search in help for "automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware" and choose the top option. After clicking on this option it didn't as i expected update the driver but downloaded a hideous theme which as removed 1/2 of the options from the window and added an advert for hp. Image of what it looks like now:

I appreciate that this is an issue with hp not microsoft and could be quite a good feature if not abused by a vendor like this. What i'd like to do is uninstall this theme, the problem is i can't work out where to do it. I can't find any options in devices and printers, there isn't anything within add / remove programs either (yes i've turn on the option to see windows updates). Any ideas?

Ide Channel - Dma/pio Status Check

I have been trying to check the dma/pio status of my system, but i couldn't find anything that mentions primary/secondary channel under "ide ata/atapi controllers" in device manager. From what i read in various forums, that is the way to do it, and also i noticed that a few people couldn't find the "primary/secondary channel" thingy as well. (But i couldn't find the solution to the issue)

My problem is that a couple usb ports (2 out of 4) that i normally used went slow when i transfer data to/from external hdd. Now i've been switching to the other 2 of the usb ports, and i could see the difference in transfer rate. This happened before with my xp system, but i could access the primary/secondary channel and switched them all back to dma, which is something i can't do now with my other system of vista. So now i would really like to check on that, and i need some help to do so.

My system:
Windows vista (up-to-date with all the windows update)
Intel core 2 duo p9600 2. 67ghz
4 gb ram
Nvidia geforce gtx 260 - 1 gb memory
Realtek/creative soundblaster

320 gb hdd (well, it's almost full, leaving about 20 gb of free space, but the problem i mentioned up there already happened when i still got 60 gb of free space like a couple months ago) it would be great if someone can help me enlighten my days here. I'm not a computer geek, but definitely not an illiterate as well.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

Epson Cx4600 Printer Will Not Work

Ms says epson cx4600 printer is win7 compatible with driver from epson. Epson says they have no intention of providing driver. I just purchased a pc with win7. Epson cx4600 printer will not work with win7.microsoft win7 compatibility chart indicates that the printer is compatible (proudly displaying the win7 compatibility logo) and provides a link to download a driver.

The link takes you to the epson site which states that no driver is available for the cx4600 printer. I emailed epson about the availability of a driver. Their response was that epson would not be providing a win7 driver. So any suggestions to make epson cx4600 work with win7?

Epson Photo Rx620 Printer

I recently upgraded from vista premium 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit. My epson photo rx 620 printer worked fine on vista, but doesn't work on windows 7. When i run the printer troubleshooter it tries to download the drivers for this printer, but fails. I contacted epson and they say the printer is compatible with windows 7 and i should get the drivers from microsoft. The microsoft driver download site doesn't list the rx 620 in either the "compatible list" or the "incompatible list".

Every time i try to send microsoft an email, i get the page telling me i have to pay for their help. Does anyone know how i can get the proper drivers for my printer?

Epson 1280 Printer Problem

I just upgraded from vista 32 to win 7 64 (clean install) with only a few problems (love win 7!)But i'll confine this post to one problem in particular:

I have two printers installed: hp laserjet 1020 and epson 1280 inkjet. I have creatacard installed in xp mode and it works fine. In the usb tab, i've left the printers in share mode (both show up, the hp is labeled with its full name, the epson is labeled with only "usb printer" - perhaps a clue to the problem?) I can print to the hp printer from creatacard but not to the epson printer. If i first start xp mode and take the "usb printer" out of share mode, then creatacard can print to it (one extra step).

Additional information: the epson printer does not show up on the "devices and printers" page and yet it does show up in the print dialog when printing a document directly from a win 7 application.

I have a creatacard icon on the win 7 desktop and it launches creatacard full screen just the way i want it to - and - it prints right out of the box to the hp printer with no intermediate action by me. I would like the same capability for the epson printer.

Question: what can i do to allow use of the epson printer in share mode for xp mode programs?

Ps, in system information - printer, the epson 1280 shows up on usb002 port and carried the right description, "epson stylus photo 1280 (m)". The hp laserjet shows up on port usb001. When i do attempt to print with the epson printer in share mode (labeled as "usb printer" in the usb dialog but corrected labeled as epson 1280 in the creatacard printer dialog box) i get an error message, "epson status monitor 3: communication error". To get rid of it i have to start task manager and stop the epson status monitor application.

Epson Stylus 440 Driver

I have just been given a brand new spanking machine (old one just completely died!) With windows 7 on it. I have tried installing a the original driver for my printer, but when i do i get a message -"windows can't install the epson stylus color 440 kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running, contact the manufacturer".

I click ok and then - another message - "printer driver cannot be installed. Your windows system may be abnormal condition. Exit windows and try again, or setup your windows again". Admittedly the printer is a parallel port - but i am waiting to receive an a adapter that will hook it up to the usb on my new box.

I noticed that in this forum satanonaharley said " i have now solved it, he works for epson and mailed me a set of drivers from wherever. One quick install and the wife is now happy again. I am glad i have a hp laser and a inkjet that are supported" there are no printer drivers on my system to uninstall. I tried contacting epson aust and they said they didn't make a driver for wind 7 that microsoft should - i rang microsoft and they said it was up to epson. If satanonaharley got his to work, how can i?

Epson Printers Printing Slow

Very very slow printing and print spooler all of a sudden, i am practically unable to print on either of my 2 epson printers (r260 and r1800). When hitting print (or ctrl-p) in any application (adobe cs4, or ms office, or internet explorer, or firefox) it takes between 2 and 5 minutes for the printer dialog box to come up and just as long to print when hitting print. I have removed the printers, and re-installed new drivers from epson and i have also done several selective startups and clean boots, none of these help.

The printer is connected directly to the computer via usb. When all printers are deleted and only ms xps document writer and fax are in the list, the dialog boxes come up instantly, but as soon as i re-install any printer, it hangs. I have also re-installed windows 7 (as an upgrade), and stopped and re-started print spooler, but that didn't change anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's driving me crazy.

Usb Epson Rx620 Printer Sharing

I've got w7 x86 installed with a usb epson rx620 working great. The pc i'm trying to share the printer with is vista ultimate x64. When i search the network for the printer, find it, select it, i get a message about "the server does not have the right driver".

So, i came here and i followed these really great, detailed steps to set up sharing to other pcs on my home network: http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/88b53ce6-b613-4e05-8da3-00e40c2d612b

When i get to the part in these instructions that allows you to add additional drivers, the x86 are already present, the x64 are not. As expected. When i select to add the x64 drivers (presumably the ones that the vista x64 machine is requesting), i get prompted to select the location of the the driver. Hence the problem. Everything i can find on epson's site and ms sites say that "vista drivers get automatically downloaded and installed".

I can't find anywhere the driver to just download and then use. Can anyone suggest a work around for this?

Epson Stylus Nx515 Driver Installation Error

Epson stylus nx515 driver installation "the printer driver package cannot be installed" error. I have epson stylus nx515 all-in-one printer and i'm trying to install its driver on my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but i'm receiving "the printer driver package cannot be installed" error in the beginning of installation.

I'm using the latest driver, which was recommended by epson tech guys, who tried to troubleshoot, but said it is a system error. I know this printer worked fine before and i don't know what's changed since then to make it fail to install the drivers now. Can anyone suggest how to troubleshoot this error?
