computer question for you guys/gals

Okay... when I installed my scanner.... my printer stopped working. My scanner is a USB scanner so it really has no interaction with the printer where as the printer is connected to the computer through my external zip drive. The zip drive works fine.

At first I was getting "out of paper" errors... when there was definitely paper in the printer. I've checked the connections numerous times and reinstalled the driver a couple of times. The printer monitor is not finding the printer... it has it listed under printers it's monitoring but if you clck on it it has a big X and says it can't find it. When I try to print the little print dialogue box icon inthe system tray has a question mark and when you open it it says user intervention required.

What could the problem be? I don't know what else to do other than sit here and uninstall/reinstall the thing... It's an Epson Stylus 640 if you need to know. Inkjet. I've never had problems with it before. I'm running an older machine... it's just a Celeron 366 MHz computer... I built it myself. So it's not like I don't know a thing or two about computers. Lol. Anyway... any suggestions? I'm just frustrated now.

I'm gonna get a new printer I think when I get my new computer but right now I just don't wanna spend the money.
