My lexmark printer dont want to install onto my computer

You have to install the software onto the computer first then plug the printer in. Since you did not say much I assumed you tried to just plug the printer in and have it work lol. The drivers have to be installed first so the computer can recognize the printer. After you get the printer installed on the computer make sure to make the lexmark the default printer if you have more then one printer installed onto the computer. I always keep my old printers so I can plug the old ones with out problems later. Hope this helps and good luck =)

Cant instal the printer to mi computer

Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows. Issue:Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows.
Solution:There are two different methods a user can install a printer in Microsoft Windows. Below is additional information about each of these methods listed in the order we believe a user should try installing their printer in Microsoft Windows.
Before being able to install your printer you must have the software that was included with the printer. If you've lost the software for your printer you can download the drivers for your printer and use the drivers to install your printer. A listing of printer manufacturers and links to their associated drivers pages can be found on our printer drivers page.
Setup a printer using printer software
Every printer should come with the software used to install a printer in Windows. Although not all installations are the same the steps for installing this software should be similar to the below steps.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Insert the CD that was included with the printer. If the CD does not automatically start the install program open My Computer, double-click on the CD drive, and then the Setup or Install file.
  3. Follow the installation wizard and your printer and its associated software should be installed successfully.
Installing a printer only using the drivers
In addition to the above steps a users can install a printer in Windows only using the printer drivers. This is recommended if you only want the printer to be installed but not the additional printer software programs that are often included with the installation and/or you've download drivers.
A listing of printer drivers and software downloads can be found through our printer drivers page.
Note: if you've installed the printer doing the above steps these steps should not be necessary unless you encountered errors.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel.
  3. In the control panel double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  4. In the Printers window click the Add a printer icon.
  5. After completing the above steps the Windows Printer Wizard will appear. Click Next, to start the wizard.
  6. Windows will prompt you if you're installing a Local or Network printer. If the printer is connected to your computer choose Local printer attached to this computer and click Next.
  7. When prompted for the location of the drivers for the printer. Browse the computer to the directory of your drivers or point it to the CD that was included with your printer.
Testing the printer
After the printer has been installed in Windows you can use Windows to print a self-test page to make sure the printer is working by following the below steps.
Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, and Vista users
  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  3. Right-click on the Printer you wish to test and click Properties. If you do not see your printer listed your printer is not installed. Seedocument CH000939 for additional information about installing a printer in Windows.
  4. In the Printers Properties window click the Print Test Page button.
  5. If the printer is able to print a test page, you're printer is installed and setup properly. However, if you're unable to print in other programs it's possible that the program you're attempting to print from has issues.

I need to install my printer to my new computer. I was told it was better to do it online

installing a printer to your new computer is a relatively simple process. If you are "networking" your printer, simply go to your old computer, right click the printer in printers and faxes, and "share" it to the network. then come to the new computer and find the share name when installing the printer from the network.

if you're installing it locally to the new computer, i would advise using your factory installation CD for the drivers, but if you do not have it you can go to the manufacturer's website and look for the appropriate drivers for your printer and operating system. download them, hook up the printer like your normally would (USB or Parallel cable) and install the drivers. Most manufacturer programs will "install" the printer on your system automatically from there, however some will require you to go to the printers and faxes module of windows and "add" a printer (use the drivers you just installed when it asks for them)

Install printer

What is your question on installing the printer? Do you not know how? Are you getting an error while trying to install? What Operating system are you trying to install the printer under?

If you are just wanting to know how to generally install a printer there are really two main ways. Most new-newer printers require that you install the printer using the CD that came with it or by downloading the software from the MFG website. During the install or after the install the program will prompt you to power your printer on and plug the cable from printer into the computer.

The other main way is by having your computer turned off, plugging in the cable from the printer to the computer, powering the printer on, powering the computer on, and then installing the printer using the CD or installer found from the MFG website.

If it is a brand new printer then documentation can be found in the box about which way you should do this (usually in the form of a quick setup sheet or in the product manual). Also if the cd that comes in the box says "Run CD first" that would indicate you should install using the first option.
