Cannot get t180 to talk to the printer Lexmart x6100

I have a new t180 and cannot get computer to turn the printer on. I loaded the software disc for lexmart x6100 and it shows that the software is there, but it says it is the default printer and I am not sure what to do. If you try to print something it comes on the screen just like always and looks like it is printing , but then after a second it comes on screen and says problem with printer.  The printer is fairly new and was working fine before I changed computers. I am new to vista software and not to good on 2000 or xp. I need my printer to work asap, any help would be greatly appericated. Thanks Jasper Brooks.  My e-mail address is

Check that the driver that is on the cdrom is vista supported and not XP as this will cause problems, the printer that is set at default may not be the lexmark, so check in the printers menu that it is actually listed.


Try here for a driver

Have a lexmark x6100 and can not connect it to computor. Have windows xp and it says no printer found, when i run set up disc, all cables are connected correctly and working


Did you run the setup disc with the printer not connected? You are supposed to connect it when setup instructs you to. Also, you may have a faulty cable. Try another cable if possible.

Video card

the computer should have the card in it. go to wal mart and look and some of them you will find one that will work. turn the computer off, take off the case, lay it on it's side take out the card, start up the computer, put in new disk, install software, turn computer off, lay it back on it's side, put the new card in, you will see how it goes in, case back on, start up computer. Your done!
