I just bought a new computer and my lexmark 1200 will not work with it. I have hooked it up properly and ran the installation disc. My computer says it is ready with a green check mark beside printer.

    I have solved the problem! Thanks for responding I do appreciate it. I did need a new driver which I downloaded for 5 hours and it works now! It's too bad the store where I bought my new PC didn't know that! I found out by exploring the Lexmark web site.

    Are there any error messages? Also have you set it as your default printer?

Make sure that the printer was installed properly and check the wires.
Probably your new OS needs differents drivers for your old printer.
Check for new drivers at manufacturer website.

Installed a new computer, can not get my all in ne lexmark printer to work


first is you have to make sure your new lexmark printer is connected properly to your New Computer, and grab some Disc Utility of your new lexmark printer and install it, but before you install just to make sure your new printer is turn-off.
Then follow the instruction & procedure which appear on your screen, install all necessary programs and drivers to make sure your printer is working. After that restart your computer & turn-on your new lexmark printer. Good luck!

Just got new computer with windows vista and am having problems loading the soft wear for my lexmark 1200 printer can you help me please


If you plugged in the printer before you ran the software unplug it. Then go into device manager and delete the printer. Install the Lexmark software BEFORE you plug the printer in. The software will prompt you when to plug in the printer.

If it doesn't work, then go to the Lexmark website to see if there is a new driver. If it still doesn't work, roll back the installation, plug the printer in, and let Vista take care of it with it's own driver.

Lexmark 1240...


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

Computer will not communicate with printer


I had this same problem...drove me crazy for a week. Called the geek squad at Best Buy and they mentioned something about a"patch" (which I had no idea what that meant) on the website of the printer. I went to Lexmark website, and selected 1200 series and windows vista (which is what's installed on my computer) A page came up to install a driver that made the two compatible and it worked!!!
