Restart your computer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer. Restart your computer. Once your desktop is loaded up. Plug the USB cable back into the computer and look next to the clock in the lower reight corner of the screen to see if the drivers are being installed. You will get messages about it.

A lot of times when you install the drivers for Lexmark printers, the prefer to have the printer unplugged from the the comptuer during the installation process. If the above paragraph doesn't work you may want to uninstall them and reinstall the drivers again with the printer unplugged from the computer.

Lexmark x2600m installation problem


Chances are to make the printer scanner work correctly, you will have to add memory to your computer. I f you are so inclined, have a look inside of your computer and check for vacant memory slots, if you have one, pop out the existing me ory and take it into your preferred supplier to match it up. if you do not have a vacant slot, one again take out the memory and take it in and upgrade the mamory to larger chips.

Hope this is of some help.

Unable to print


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 sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

Communication problem with notebook/printer


You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.

Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.

Good luck.
