I have used my Lexmark 2350 printer for a few years. All of it's features worked perfectly. As of late I receive an error message saying that the printer cannot communicate with the computer. I have done all the suggestions, disconnect and reconnect the cables, turn the computer on and of. After uninstalling and reinstalling the software, only some of the features are installed. The computer does not detect the printer. However, scanning and copying work just fine. I've try installing another printer, but the same happened. When I boot up my computer, I receive an error message saying WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO SHUT DOWN. I do'nt know of the problem is caused by that error message. I should be terribly thankful if I can get a solution for this problem

Re: Printer cannot communicate with the computer
Drivers, Software, lost C.D....come this way!
If you have lost you cd or don't know how to install your printer then all you
need to do is download the drivers and software from the manufactures website
that suits your operating system and printer.

Installing like this Lexmark are Plug in Play, Windows automatically detected such devices connected on it. If not then try to use another USB Connector to see which is the problem occur or might be your printer too... Good luck!
maybe the usb cable went completely, you can try to replace it with another, also Ive heard lexmark power supplies can go bad without notice, can you copy standalone with it? you should. if not then check power output with a multimeter. Is your new dell running on vista? you may have to download a driver specific for vista and lexmark from lexmark website NOT the XP driver the VISTA driver, I had to do that with mine. just a couple ideas. good luck
Should work, try to print and you should get the print window (press the apple key and P together works) the top line is also the printer select feature, click the blue box to the right with 2 little up and down arrows and you should get an add printer button, follow instructions , if it cant see the printer (make sure it is connected and on) look on the laxmark site for a driver (there is an option when installing the os to not install all the drivers that apple inlclude)
That's because Lexmark 2350 does not work with Windows Vista yet. There are currently no supported Vista drivers for this printer. I don't know if Lexmark is working on an update to provide support for 2350 on Vista, but you can always write to them as ask for status.
here is lexmarks page for its drivers, just choose your windows version and download:
