Re: need help installing printer

You need to run the software that came with the machine or download the latest drivers from: Make sure you delete any other failed instances of the printer from the print properties| in control panel. During the install the program will ask to have the printer hooked up. Plug the printer into the computer via the usb cable(or lpt cable). The install should find the printer and the install will complete. If the printer isn't found still, try a different usb port/or cable. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Printer is installed for wireless with network. constantly goes offline and requires re-installation.

The issue is with your router. Without knowing anything else about your network equipment I can tell you the following.

The lease on the network address for the printer keeps expiring or another machine on your home network keeps taking the address while the printer is still leasing it.

The solution is to access your router's configuration page and basically reserve a network address for the printer.

That way when the lease for the printer's address is up, the router will just re-assign that address to it. Your computers also won't need to re-install the printer either because it will always have that network address.

As for another machine taking the address, you'll want to make sure that all the computers that connect to your network are set to dynamic (DHCP) network addressing. That should keep your printer online for a good while.

Since downloading vista on my desktop it keeps saying my printer connection has failed, I have unplugged and restarted to no avail

Hello. You will need to install the printer driver compatible for vista as well. There are drivers, for Vista, available for download in the Lexmark website. But you have to uninstall the existing driver first so there will be no conflict. To uninstall properly, go to Sart Menu > Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Restart your computer. Check if your computer is running on Vista 32-bit or 64-bit by going to Start Menu > right click on Computer > Properties. To download, just click on this link: . On the page, type the exact model number of your printer in the bar just below the images of some of Lexmark's printer (eg. X1270). Click on your printer's image. Choose the correct driver for your printer. Install the software. Hope this helps.

My lexmark printer dont want to install onto my computer

You have to install the software onto the computer first then plug the printer in. Since you did not say much I assumed you tried to just plug the printer in and have it work lol. The drivers have to be installed first so the computer can recognize the printer. After you get the printer installed on the computer make sure to make the lexmark the default printer if you have more then one printer installed onto the computer. I always keep my old printers so I can plug the old ones with out problems later. Hope this helps and good luck =)

My printer does not print anymore...

Hi Ika1s, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Won"t print- will copy:

You need to reinstall your printer driver. If you have the installation cd,
1. unplug your printer from the computer,
2. install the driver from the cd,
3. plug your printer back into the computer
4. turn the printer on
5. print your document.

If you do not have the installation cd, try the printer manufacturer's web site for the print driver. Before installing the driver, disconnect the printer from the pc to make sure installation goes smoothly.

Once the driver is installed, when you plug the printer into the computer and power it on, the computer will find it and finish the installation process automatically.

This will not help the problem posted by guest. His problem is totally unrelated.
