Question about Lexmark X2470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I may have wrongly made my PC a network server (It isn't). It's stand-alone. The right printer is shown as default. Reloaded it with the installation CD but at the last step (test page) it shows ERROR in print queue. During reinstallation, I get an error message that the disc doesn't have the right driver, which is nonsense, unless I've corrupted my PC system files. Disconnect printer USB and PC makes a di-dong. Reconnect the USB cable and instead of an uptone doh-ding, sounds a soft duh-duh-duh. I've used my Canon Pixma MP600 printer normally for 2 years until I started messing about downloading driver updates and stuff for my PC model from the PC mfr's website (ASUS). I need to know what the system structure should look like for a single PC. It thinks its part of a network now. I'm reluctant to start deleting stuff in case I make it worse. Need advice please. I have a system recovery disc and files are backed regularly.
This is a classic example of 'a little knowledge is dangerous' !!
Lexmark Driver CD's included in the printer upon purchase does not include Vista drivers, this includes all the printers made by Lexmark until early 2009.
- Download the driver in the web (www.lexmark.com).
- Completely uninstall all the previous Lexmark printers, including those copies made in the Printers folder (if any), delete them manually (click and press delete on keyboard).
- Reboot your PC.
- Remove the USB cable.
- Unplug the Printer, Remove the Black Power Supply at the back of the printer (for 20 seconds), put power supply back in.
- Instal the new downloaded driver. Follow instructions. DO NOT INSERT USB CABLE, unless instructed by the installer.
- It should work.
- Ding me if problems persist.
