Question about Lexmark X75 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have been having Printer - Computer communication issues lately. I have had the Lexmark X75 Printer installed for more than 5 years without a problem. It can't be a problem with Windows XP because it has been functioning with this printer right along.
I have done the following in order for the printer to work:
a) Disconnected the USB cable at the printer and the computer
and then reconnected it.
b) Disconnected the power cord between the printer and a
different electrical outlet and powerstrip. (As recommended in
the window that appears telling of the communication problem
c) I have gone to the control panel to check to see if the default
printer icon is "highlighted" and is on-line. There were times
when I deleted the print-jobs that were pending to be printed.
(sometimes as many a 7-10)
d) I have "uninstalled the Printer" and re-installed it using the
original software with the drivers.When I went to the control
panel to check on the status of the printer at times no icon
is there for the printer. Sometimes there are two listed - One
with a "black check mark" signifying that it is set as the
default printer and one other listed as "Lexmark X74-75
e) I purchased a new USB cable thinking that perhaps there is
a defect with the original one.
f) I have switched the USB and cable.
g) I have Shut-Down and Restarted the computer.
The only change that was made recently to the computer was the installation of a Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop (Mouse and Keyboard) 6000 in early January of 2009. It was a holiday present from
However, the printer funtioned.
Recently, not with great frequency, a "bubble" appeared in the lower right of the screen informing me of ....One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfuntioned and Windows does not recognize it. The location of the device is in bold type.
a USB Icon Symbol followed by:
USB Root Hub (2 ports)
USB Composite Device
* Unknown USB Device (Highlighted
I went into the "Device Manager" and deleted the "Unknown Device" whatever that was. The only thing that is pluged into the second USB port in the back of the computer is "The USB Stick"
that came with the Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. Question: Could this be the problem.
There were times when I would get the printer to printout " Test Sheets" for setting black and white/color levels. On occasion a document from saved in an application such as Word or Publisher.
If someone can offer some help with this delema it would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Can I install Lexmark X74-X75
I have checked with Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility & Lexmark websites & they both said that the driver is not compatible with Windows 7. I dont know if Lexmark will release a driver for windows7.

It could be a slight communication problem. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.
