    Windows XP Pro and Epson

    Ok, I managed to install WinXP Pro on my computer, and I just purchased an Epson Stylus color 880 printer. Now I have used a lot of printers before but this one is really wierd. I have everything configured correctly to my knowledge, but for some reason it will cut off the last 10% or so of a page in terms of width. Everything on the left is fine, but it just cuts everything off to the right, as it appears to be a problem with margins that I cannot solve. I downloaded the latest drivers for it, but still it doesn't work. I called Epson, and they said that their printers are not web compatable, I've never heard of such a thing!! Does anyone know what I could do?

    Thanks
    Steven

    could it be your page size is set incorrectly? set it to A4 or whatever size you use and see if that's not it...

    I did everything that you said but I didn't see a anything like A4. Can you tell me what tab you are under when you selected A4?

    Thanks

    it's titled "Paper" and has a drop down list with all the different paper sizes... select the one's that your size and test it out...

    but don't get your hopes up that this is the problem

    redemption,
    You are a Saint. Althought that wasn't my problem, I just changed the margins settings from .75 inches each to 0 and it worked. You saved me a trip to return it, thank you very much, as you help is greatly appreciated.
