According to Epson, XP has built-in support for the FX-1050. Info here:

Regarding the windows protection error in 98, can you post your hardware specs and tell us the exact wording/number of the error and what you're doing when it happens.

i never had the epson installed when i protection error started.
the reason i want win98 to start working is so that i can use it to print from word and notepad, 4 now i can print from dos in xp

try dirty install, reinstall 98 over itself. I used 98 for the longest time and never had many problems with it, but when i did the easiest fix was always dirty install. I couldnt tell you after that, because if it was still busted I made CP fix it and he never told me what he did to it.

Default Re: Windows 98 windows error protection error

i was wondering if anyone can help me. i formatted my laptop and then installed windows 98. it installed and then restarted to check hardware. it went through the checklist of desktop etc and then come up saying windows protection error, you have to restart before it made it to windows.

any thoughts?
