Have you installed any update recently? Sometimes the updates meant to fix problems create others
But the most common problem is a faulty USB cable. Try another one and see if it works.

My windows 8.1 computer printing menu(page setup) doesn't ask me the number of copies I want and my monochrome laser printer doesn't stop can this be corrected ? please answer and/or corr

The setting for number of pages usually can be set from within the printers software. Or when you go to print check Print Preview and try setting it from there. Normally a printer wont print more pages than the amount you are attempting to print.

In Windows 7, items put in the print queue at home won't print when I get to the office.

I don't see how this can be done, because there are 2 different print queues in question. Not to mention the lag and buffer required by the printer. So when you disconnect communication the job hangs.

Besides the spooler at work my lie on a dedicated print server, especially if the printer is on a network and and not attached directly to you PC.

This looks like either you do not have correct drivers, or that the drivers didn't install or didn't install properly Double check that you have the proper drivers. If you do, try reinstalling them.

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer

Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.

If you can't follow that link, go to On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.

I have the same issues with a Lexmark printer, Lexmark printers are not very user friendly with Vista. What I did is create a dual boot with XP and installed the software for the printer there. If interested in that follow these instructions or contact lexmark support.
