Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One Printer
I "probably stupidly" bought a lexmark x4270 all in one printer/scanner/fax at a yard sale. It didn't come with a CD or booklet so I figured I could just download the driver like i've done in the past. I have dialup so we all know it took Forver to download the driver. After It was downloaded it said to plug in the usb cable and turn on printer. Did that but nothing happened. Apparently my Emachine laptop won't recongize the lexmark. I don't know what else to do. Any ideas? Thanks
Did you make sure the printer was turned on when you plugged it in? If the power is not turned on, the computer will not find the printer. If you had it on, then reboot your laptop and press whatever key allows you to go into system setup. Once there, check the various areas until you find where it asks if you have a Plug and Play operating system. If it says "NO", change it to "YES".
If you've done all these, then try installing the software first, until it tells you to plug in the USB cable. If you've followed all these instructions and still cannot get the printer recognized by your computer, chances are the printer is bad - which would explain it being sold at a yard sale.
