Maybe there are some software errors from the link and so a printer reset can eb tried. so remove your printer from the PC and un-install the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels. If this wont work then the browser has some errors within the OS with the printer initiation. So try to restore the PC to an earlier set date or the possibility of some errors in the OS needs a check.

The primary alternative for you is to restore your computer to the date before HP updates were made.
To restore your computer for windows xp users, do the following.
Go to Start->Programs->accessories -> system tools and click system restore.
Make sure that restore my computer to an earlier date, is selected and click next, next select the date before the HP updates took place and then click next and next. Give your computer sometime to restore and restart and check if your lexmark is detected. In case the restore didn't help; grab your lexmark printer cd and reinstall it.
If ur facing this problem recently. than u can restore ur computer. start /run /type restore / restore the computer to earlier time. select the bold color date which is last week date( the day when the scanner is working properly). click in next . now the computer will restart. you will get a message like restore completed successfully.
...so re-install the software like it says, or try a system restore to a few days ago when it was still working: in XP: "Start" "Programs" "Accessories" "System Tools" "System restore" "Restore My computer to an earlier time".....
Vista: Type "Restore" into the "start menu search box", select it, and follow the prompts.
By any chance did this happen after you installed IE8? Just wondering, because there have been so many problems related to that. But it could be some other conflicting update. Try a "system restore' back a few days to when everything was ok.... "Start" "Programs" "accessories" "system tools" System restore" "restore my computer to an earlier time" Pick a date before you had problems. Then, even if the printer is not returned (which I think it will be), try re-installing the driver
