note that windows 98 is no longer compatible with recent gadgets like you printer. this means that your pc registry is not able to load up the modules for installation process that needs certain requirements that your windows 98 do not meet.
the best option i advice you on is to check your pc's performance: your ram, processor and power supply. if your ram is over 512mb and your processor is near or above 1ghz, then you can either install another windows on the system without removing your 98 windows. this will help you install any other devices by using the other windows modules and swiching between the windows easily. this option is not advisable but helpfull when you do not want to override you existing windows so you could add any machine to your pc.
i know this might be a boring and a long process to consider if the printer you have does not support windows 98, but you could try it if you willing.
i will be more than just happy to hear soon fron you.
well do ot install it using the cd,first of all connect the printer and then inser the cd when prompted.this should work. if you want a technician to do the entire troubleshooting for you.You may get in touch with one of the techbuddies,they offer free technical support for such issues. you may get them at http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
I regret to inform you that Microsoft no longer supports its Windows 98/Me operating systems. Microsoft's licenses that authorized manufacturers of printing and imaging equipment, including Lexmark, to include Microsoft's related USB files in printer and scanner drivers have also terminated. Consequently, Lexmark no longer is authorized to reproduce or distribute any Lexmark drivers that include Windows 98/Me USB functionality. Lexmark has removed Microsoft Windows 98/Me USB files from our currently distributed CDs as well as all web packages for Windows 98 and ME. This means that Lexmark is no longer able to provide Windows 98/Me USB functionality in any drivers for existing products. You may still retain the right to use/reload any driver CD or web package obtained previously.
Lexmark regrets any inconvenience this may cause our customers. If you have any questions about how this may affect you, you may refer to our KnowledgeBase articles, which can be located at http://support.lexmark.com.
Windows draw 6 is a very old program that has changed hand many time the last owners were Coral and they have not moved with it. You could try the following if you do not have the software disk for the printer[Why is that?] Go start/printers and faxes/ click on it ans click on 'Add printer' The system will look for plug and plany and the ask- insert CD or select from list. Choose select from list then find the make [Lexmark] then Model 3200 click on it and windows will load driver from its own resources.
Anoth problem is if you are System is XP or Vista and the programs is most likey a DOS based Win 95/8 then it wont run. Try to get round this by going to Start/Programs/Accessories/SystemTools/Compatability Wizard and try restting the machine to 98.
