Unplug the printer.

Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs, Remove Epson Drivers.

Check click here for newer drivers.


Reinstall using either downloaded or CD Drivers.

In fact you shouldn't have had to remove or reinstall the drivers as the new printer would have been detected fine by the old drivers.

sometimes the so called installation programmes cannot find certain files.. in your case the INF (INformation File)... most programmes give you the option to browse for it, do so and click it, before clicking ok.
