i have just installed a firewire card (pci1394) on my pc and it works ok but my printer has stopped printing now.i'm using windows xp and my printer is an epson r340.when i ask the pc to print something everything seems to be going to happen but the printer is not getting the message and not printing.i've reinstalled the drivers but still no joy.the pci card is from startech.any ideas would be welcome.

look in start - services.msc and look for spooler and it should be auto and started.

Just a long shot, but is the printer connected by USB or Firewire cable? If it is Firewire, then reversing the cable has been known to work in this situation (even though it is supposedly fully bi-directional).

Are you sure you reinstalled the drivers with the power off and usb disconnected until instructed otherwise by the installer?
