If you mean that the computer is not detecting the printer, there are a couple of things to try first. I would first just shut off the computer than plug the printer in, and start the computer to see if it would auto detect. This would soley depend if the drivers are already installed on you operating system. I am running XP Home, and I did not see the printer.

Second step would be to download and install the driver. Here it is.

Just scroll down to your operating system download, scan with anti-virus and install. Make sure that the printer is hooked up when you install the software in case it tries to auto detect. If this doesn't work it could be that your ports are not working for some reason. Then the next step would be to look at the hardware manager set up.

Hello, I have the emachines EL 1200 - 06w PC desktop. I would like to connect an HP 4000 N printer. The printer has parallel connector. This computer does not. Is there a way to connect the printer?


On ebay search for USB to Parallel convertor. It is available, very inexpensive and useful. I have one for my older printer. You will need drivers from hp.com when it is connected to get it to work properly.

How do I connect my lexmark printer to my emachines computer


well there should be a connector that goes from the printer to the computer. I have a Lexmark printer it has a USB cable that connects to my emachines tower. Plug the printer in, be sure your computer is off when you plugged your printer in. Then turn the computer on, it should recognize your printer after it boots up. If not you may have some software that came with the printer(sometimes you need the software)Follow any onscreen prompts(for driver or updates)

A window should come up that will walk you through the setup process. Where the computer has you test to make sure the printer prints correctly. It should be pretty self explanatory

Have downloaded new lexmark x4270 driver for Vista. Still can't print.


un-install the old drivers and software, then reboot the computer with the USB cable to the printer pulled out and reinstall the lexmark software, it will tell you if you need to put the cable in!

here is the authentic lexmark sofware just in case:

This usually happen with an old printer and new computer with new OS.
You can try downloading your new driver for Vista at Lexmark website here:

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_652569478_0_en,00.html

If doesn't work, ask to customer service for assistance

But at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.

Are you using USB?
Unplug everything you DON'T need that's USB, then reinstall the printer, make sure the cable is not over 6ft long.
