I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 560 pre installed with windows 7 64 bit, and tried adding my new Epson SX215 all in one printer (USB connection only), everytime I plug it in I get the Code 43 error and Windows will not recognise it as a printer - it
appears as an unknown device under USB Controllers.
So far I have tried : Updating Chipset and Bios, Reinstalling USB drivers, Clean install of windows, reinstalled printer drivers direct from Epson support all to no avail. I cannot manually add the printer as USB001 is not a listed port.
I also thought it may be a conflict between the all in one card readers installed on both the PC and the printer so have tried disabling those on the PC to no effect.
I have searched the internet for days and cant seem to find this problem anywhere.
I have also borrowed a friends laptop running Vista and the printer is instantly recognised and working so it rules out a hardware fault. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated -Lee T
