  2. Error: Specified driver invalid when trying to print

    I have just installed a brand new Epson printer, but when I try to print I get a message "Specified driver invalid". I got this message with the old printer and thinking the printer was the problem I bought a new one. Note this only happened after I did
    a reboot. My computer is running Windows 10. Please help

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while using the printer on your PC. For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the questions below.



    1. What is the exact model of the printer?
    2. Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently?
    3. How is the printer connected to the PC?
    4. How did you install the drivers for the printer?


    Refer the article Which version of Windows operating system am I running?



    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to try troubleshooting the printer using the Windows printer troubleshooter. Refer the articles

    Fix printer problems
    and
    Fix printer connection and printing problems in Windows 10
    and see if that helps.



    You can also try changing the registry settings for the printer and see if you are able to print.



    Note: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs




    Refer the article
    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows




    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type regedit and click on OK.
    1. Now navigate to the location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\PostSPUpgrade
    2. Right click on PostSPUpgrade and click on
      Delete.
    3. Click on Yes.
    4. Restart the PC.


    In addition, you may want to refer the article
    Troubleshooting
    by Epson and see if you are able to print.



    Let us know how it goes.
