Are you trying to install the Lexmark X4550 to your Mac computer? What is the exact OS of your Mac (i.e 10.3.x; 10.4.x or 10.5.x)?

You have to make sure that the pinter is compatible with the OS that you have.

I don't have a doubt with the printer since you mentioned that it worked with XP. To install the printer to your Mac, please follow the steps below:

If your printer does not appear in the Printer pop-up menu, find and install the appropriate driver. Check any CD-ROM discs included with the printer, or the website of your printer's manufacturer. Only users with an administrator account can install software.

Tip: You can also open the Printer List window from Printer Center (Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier) or the Printer Setup Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, or later).

Check the Printer menu again after installing the software. If the printer does not appear, you may need to do this:

  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your computer, plugged in, and turned on.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier, from the Printer menu in the print dialog choose Edit Printer List. The Printer List window appears.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.3 or later, choose Show Printer List from the View menu. The Printer List window appears.
  4. Click the Add Printer button.
  5. Choose USB from the first pop-up menu.
  6. Select your printer from the list.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Close the Printer List window.
If the printer will not work, you may download the driver from the Web and install it. Here, I have provided you the link where you can download the printer driver:

http://www.findmysoft.com/drivers/Lexmark-X4550-1-0-11-1-printer-driver.html

Just click the download button and install it.

Have a great day!

I just bought a Dell studio laptop Vista) and my printer is the Lexmark X4550. I need to install my laptop to the printer. I have only the MAC Disc. Can you help me?


Start up your laptop > connect the printer to the laptop > turn on the printer > follow the prompts when the Windows Hardware Installation Wizards opens and you should be fine with internet access and/or your Windows Vista installation CD.

The Z22 does not appear on Lexmarks vista compatability list and so there is no specific vista driver.
There is a driver for Windows XP which you could try

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=227:1:0:0:0:0

Select Z22 as printer model and search
then choose windows XP from the list of operating systems

I have a computer with the Vista software and I'm having problems connecting a printer. The computer is a Gateway and the printer is Lexmark X4550.


The reason you are having problems is because you need to install the driver for the printer. The driver is the software that allows the operating system and the printer to communicate.

For your specfic printer , you can download the driver here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/LEXMARK/Lexmark-X4550-Printer-Driver-10111.shtml

Simply download it and run the setup , it will install the printer for you and you should be able to print!
