Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have been using the Lexmark X4570 all in one printer with desktop pc & windows xp professional and the same problem developed (had to disconnect printer usb cable to boot up). I removed the bios options to boot from removable drives and also disabled the A (floppy) drive (I don't have one). The pc now boots up with the printer connected but still continues to freeze on the Asus motherboard screen if I leave a memory card in the printer's card reader. I suppose this is only half a solution but maybe someone out there has some other ideas. I don't have this problem if I leave other usb devices plugged in (eg keyboard, portable hard drives, camera etc.)

Disable booting from USB in the BIOS or check your BIOS manufacturer for an update. Some PCs attempt to boot from the card reader in the lexmark printer causing the problem.
Or just connect the printers USB cable after booting your computer.
A friend has a 2.0 Usb port next to him and connects it there after boot.
Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.
Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.
Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
Also, You do have the new VISTA software for your Lexmark, right.
