If the printer is connected directly to your computer and you want others to use it through your computer, you have to set it up as a network computer for remote access.

Your computer has to be on when other want to print.
You set up your network settings to allow printer and file sharing
then you go to printers and set it for sharing.

You have to config things based off the network you have.

If the printer has a network card, then you can plug it into the network directly and anyone can print to it as long as the printer is on.

You set up the printer through it IP. Us your main computer to install the drivers first, then go to install printers and follow the guid to locate your printer on the network. You will probably have to install the drivers on each P.C or laptop.

Now if you have absolutely no idea how to do any of this and are not inclined to try, then i wold suggest googling how to setup a network printer as well as reading the paper work that came with it, as alot of times they have the instructions in there.

Because going through step by step without being there would take me forever.

Good luck.

Trying to install a lexmark x63 to my computer


Here's a link to Lexmark's site where you can download the printer drivers:

If your computer is running Windows Vista this printer may not work. At least Lexmark doesn't offer drivers for Vista. This either means it's not compatible, or that Vista doesn't need any special driver software.

I have a computer with the Vista software and I'm having problems connecting a printer. The computer is a Gateway and the printer is Lexmark X4550.


The reason you are having problems is because you need to install the driver for the printer. The driver is the software that allows the operating system and the printer to communicate.

For your specfic printer , you can download the driver here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/LEXMARK/Lexmark-X4550-Printer-Driver-10111.shtml

Simply download it and run the setup , it will install the printer for you and you should be able to print!

I have a Lexmark X63 printer, but it is not listed as one of the printers that is compatible with my Acer computer.


Does the computer have Windows Vista on it?

If so, that is correct. Lexmark does not have a Vista driver for the X63.

However, many people with Lexmarks (and other non-Vista supported models) have had success using Windows 2000 drivers on computers with Vista installed.

If you have Windows XP installed, or if you have Vista and want to try the Windows 2000 driver, they can both be downloaded here, directly from Lexmark:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+X63


Be sure to UNPLUG the printer from the PC before installing the software. ONLY plug it in once the on-screen instructions tell you to do so.
