    If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

I bought the HP Deskjet 5650, but I'm not sure how to install it to my home computer.


First find the installation disk that came with your printer in the box. Install the software by placing the disk in your CDROM of your computer and then follow the instructions on the screen. when the software has finished installing, connect your printer to the computer with your USB cord and the computer will automatically do the rest.

Some operating systems already have the driver for your printer and the software is not necessary. To check and see if your computers operating system already has the necessary drivers, just connect your printer via your usb cord. Your computer will recognize the printer once the cord is connected and you will see a pop up message around the right hand corner of the monitor screen that says "new equipment detected" and the computer will do the rest.

Good luck!

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

My Emachine laptop won't recongize my Lexmark


Did you make sure the printer was turned on when you plugged it in? If the power is not turned on, the computer will not find the printer. If you had it on, then reboot your laptop and press whatever key allows you to go into system setup. Once there, check the various areas until you find where it asks if you have a Plug and Play operating system. If it says "NO", change it to "YES".

If you've done all these, then try installing the software first, until it tells you to plug in the USB cable. If you've followed all these instructions and still cannot get the printer recognized by your computer, chances are the printer is bad - which would explain it being sold at a yard sale.

Windows vista is a brand new OS and many printer manufacturers have had to produce new drivers to run on these OS. I would visit lexmark website and download the new driver fo your printer and OS (vista).
