Re: need cd info to reinstall printer
Go to the manunfacture website of your printer. Usually under Support or Drivers or Downloads you will be able to download the drivers. You will need the model of your printer as well as the Operating System.

Windows may have eaten its baby again- that is, the driver for that printer.
Open the Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes, delete any listing for that model of printer, make sure the printer is on and connected, then reboot your system.
This will force Win to 'find' the printer and install an uncorrupted driver for it.

Hmmm i think i need a bit more info... have you tried using the copy function? Check the Lcd screen for error msgs? If the copy function works and there are no error msgs then i would suggest a uninstall and then reinstall of the driver:
Use this updated driver direct from lexmark. During the install it should print a test page.
You need to reinstall your printer driver. If you have the installation cd,
1. unplug your printer from the computer,
2. install the driver from the cd,
3. plug your printer back into the computer
4. turn the printer on
5. print your document.
If you do not have the installation cd, try the printer manufacturer's web site for the print driver. Before installing the driver, disconnect the printer from the pc to make sure installation goes smoothly.
Once the driver is installed, when you plug the printer into the computer and power it on, the computer will find it and finish the installation process automatically.
