in the install did you set the printer as a local printer or a network printer? try connecting the printer to the pc with windows 7 directly this should load the correct driver under plug and play once it sees the printer connected. once the driver is set and you go through the install of the printer set it as a network printer.. and specify that it is connected over the interface for the wired router. hope this helps.

I can't get the down load for the Lexmark x1240 to work. I have down loaded it but when I try to get the computer to recognize the printer, it doesn't or it doesn't let it connect


Did the drivers install completely?

If so, try plugging the printer USB cable in a different USB socket, one that you did not plug the printer into before. If you don't have a "fresh" free USB socket, you can always swap plugs with the mouse for example.
Te computer should discover your printer and use the already installed driver.

If the driver did not install at all, try installing it again with the printer unplugged from USB, and plug it in to a "fresh" USB socket (as described above) only when asked to by the installer software.

Are you saying that the computer crashed? Try plugging in the printer without installing the driver. The computer should recognize that you plugged it in and search for a driver. Do you get that far?
Do you have the original installation CD? If not, then download the driver software from www.lexmark.com. Navigate to the support and drivers section and get the proper driver. Then try to install it that way.

Printer installation?


You will have to reload your printer. Plug the printer to your computer and reboot. The Plu and Play should recognize it. Then the Ad Hardware Wizard will pop up. Load the CD that came with the printer and the Wizard will allow you to load and configure the printer driver. Once the drivers are loaded you can print a test page. If it is a USB printer then load the drivers first, then plug your printer in and reboot.

I need to install my lexmark x7170 all in one but i lost my install disk what can i do.


IF you have Vista when you plug in USB cable it automatically loads drivers for your printer no disk needed.On rare occasion it may not find it but check the Lexmark website for your printer and download drivers to computer.Disconnect printer from computer then install drivers.After drivers load then plug in usb from printer and they should automatically load and find printer.

Problems installing a printer


You can follow the steps below to install a resident printer driver which is part of your operating system.
NOTE: Windows should detect and automatically install devices attached via the Parallel or USB ports on the computer. You should be able to attach the printer, and the "Plug and Play" feature will install the appropriate driver.
If the driver does not automatically install, please contact your Computer vendor. The "Plug and Play" feature may be disabled within your computer.
The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.
1. Start by opening the "Printers and Faxes" window. Click on "Add Printer" on the left hand side of the screen.
2. The "Add Printer Wizard" screen will come up. Click on "Next".
3. At the "Local or Network Printer" screen, select "Local Printer" and place a check on "Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer". Click on "Next".
4. Windows should report it will check for Plug and Play hardware. It should also detect and install the appropriate resident printer driver.
5. A window will appear and tell you when the process is completed.
*NOTE: If Windows does not detect your printer automatically, you can manually install the printer. Simply select EPSON under manufacturer and select your appropriate model under PRINTERS.
6. When the printer is installed, it will ask you if you would like to print a test page. Check "Yes", then click on "Next".
7. The next screen will display the settings for the printer. Click on "Finish" to complete the installation and print the test page.
