I reformatted my hard drive and istalled XP s1 and after SP2. Everything works except that I cannot install my Lexmark X6100 series printer. The printer works great with other computers. I downloaded the drivers from Lexmark for XP s2 and I still cannot install printer. I keep getting the message " Hardware cannot be installed etc. I noticed tha the print spooler in msconfig is stopped?

    My Desktop PC is not recognizing anything installed on the USB ports. As I have stated, I reformatted my hard drive and installed Xp sp 1 and then downloaded all updates until I got to Sp2 and then installed it. Everything works except that I cannot install my USB printer(Lexmar x6100 series). I went into ms services and made sure my printer spooler was on auto. However, when I run msconfig, it shows it as stopped, even after rebooting. As I mentioned, I have an extra USB mouse and it too does not work regardless what USB port I use. All my hardware used to work on this computer prior to reformatting.

    Thanks for the help. However, I ended up removing XP SP2 and SP1 allowed me to install the printer. I tried to reinstalled SP2 and I crashed severely. Since I had no data saved, I reformatted and I installed win 98 and all my peripherals and when I have 10 hours to spare, I'll install my XP upgrade and then go thru the endless upgrades updates until I get to SP2. Then we'll see....This is an old computer that it's only used for emailing and I refuse to buy a new one. (PIII 866 MHz /Asus motherboard).

If this is actually a usb problem which it sounds like then it is much simpler to resolve. I would just download the latest motherboard drivers from the manufacturers website an reinstall these. USB drivers are generally installed when the motherboard drivers are installed, espicially if the USB card is in a pci slot

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of the others...

If the Print Spooler could be started and yet problems in installing the printer, additionally pls try make sure that the Remote Procedure Call is set to automatic and running.

If with both started and running and yet an error will be displayed "Error 23: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)", sorry but you might be better off doing a clean/fresh install. At this early stage and errors are present, it is likely others will follow. You may also want to confirm the the XP CD installer has no scratches and that there will be no install error during the process.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Hi again,

    Based on your subsequent postings, re-install/update the USB drivers not from Microsoft but from the download & support of the motherboard manufacturer.

    Cheers.

If you are not able to install even after starting the spooler then ,

  1. Go to Start, All Programs, Lexmark, Uninstall Lexmark.
  2. Reboot the PC.
  3. Go to Start, Control Panels, Printers and Faxes.
  4. Go to File, Server Properties, Drivers.
  5. If there are any Lexmark printer drivers, select them and click Remove.
  6. Open Windows Explorer.
  7. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86 and delete all the Lexmark files from this folder.
Then try to install the driver....

Good luck...

Try to remove the printer software from your computer then disconnect the printer from the computer and then restart the computer... Try first to connect the printer and let the computer recognize your printer and install the driver for it don;t run the software for the printer....

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

Cannot get t180 to talk to the printer Lexmart x6100


check that the driver that is on the cdrom is vista supported and not XP as this will cause problems, the printer that is set at default may not be the lexmark, so check in the printers menu that it is actually listed.

 

Try here for a driver

How can I change operating systems


Buy the XP UPGRADE. It is around $90 and you can find it just about anywhere thjat sells software. You need at least 512 of memory for it to run smoothly. Once you install the upgrade ME will be gone.
