Can't install Lexmark Pro901 in Windows 8

I cannot install the Pro901 printer on my laptop using windows 8. I will connect fine via USB PnP. But if I try to add it as a network printer it does not work. When it asks which driver is shows the pro700 driver and a pro910 driver. Neither of these work. there is no drivers listed for the 800-900 series. When you enter port information before you select the drivers, I am stating the the device type is a lexmark network printer, Is this correct. I see other people have had the problem as well. i have not seen any viable solution provided. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately, Lexmark instructions state to use the driver provided by Windows 8. Windows 8 provides drivers for series Pro 700 and pro910 printers. Neither of these will work with the Pro901 printer. It installs but if you try to print a test page or any other document, it does not communicate with the printer.

Go to the following website and enter your printer model (F4270) in the "Search by Model" box. It will then ask you to select your O/S. Vista Business is the same as Vista with respect to printer drivers. Vista 64 bit is one of the options, select it if you have Vista 64 bit. Otherwise try the XP driver

I tried several times to install the new firmware update for my Lexmark Pro901. The update is not able to find the printer. I also try to connect it via searching for the printers IP adress. But it did not...

If you're getting an error message, "There's a problem with your printhead" you won't be able to update the firmware of your printer. You need to get rid of the error message first before applying the firmware update. Here's how:
  1. Open the cover of the printer > Remove the printhead. If the printhead will not go to the center, turn off the printer and pull the printhead to the center.
  2. Once you have the printhead removed, close the cover of the printer and turn on the printer.
  3. Once you have the printhead removed, close the cover of the printer.
  4. It will ask you to "Open Cover to Install the Printhead". Press the Home icon.
  5. It should take you back to the Main menu.
  6. Proceed with the firmware update. Just go to and choose the model number of your printer.
  7. Once the firmware update is successful, go back to step 1 and install the printhead.
If it doesn't work, try to connect the USB cable. Or you can check out this link:

It could be a software issue. Try to uninstall the existing Lexmark Pro901 driver from your desktop pc by going to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark -> Pro900 Series -> Uninstall Lexmark Pro900 Series. Reboot pc when prompted.

To reinstall, download the Lexmark Pro900 Series driver using the links below: - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 64-bit
Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.

Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

Install of X7675 Lexmark, chrashes on install of scanner

Please ensure you have the latest driver, you can get it from:

Also Let me know how is the printer connected to the computer, is it via USB cable or Wireless ?. Are you doing the install by executing the Setup.exe from the CD ? Or via PnP.
If you are seeing the problem with Setup.exe, I would recommend trying a PnP..for this you may want to uninstall any previous copies of the driver. Plug in the printer using the USB cable.
The first "Found new hardwate wizard" is for the scan driver, install it by pointing to the ".DriversScan" folder. If this is successful, the next prompt will be for a Print driver, point it to "DriversWin_XP2k" folder and let it finish the install.

Let me know how this goes.
