I have been working with lexmark on the issue of usb comm failure. It has come to the attention of tech support that it is necessary to install a comm buffer in line . the symptoms can vary from erroneous character printing to reprinting the same line over itself and even printing machine language. in all cases they recommend installing this buffer, lexmark tech support can provide these at no charge. I hope this helps. Be mucho blessed... Mark

The issue is many Windows 7 installs are 64 bit, and your software does not work on 64 bit installs. Your drivers lists as 32 bit install even. As this is going to be an issue for many people, is there any...

If you have tried installing the printer driver for 32-bit on your computer, you might want to uninstall it first before installing the Lexmark X6650 driver for 64-bit. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark X6600 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Reboot pc when prompted.
You can download the Lexmark X6650 driver for Windows 64-bit from the Lexmark website. Go to this link: Lexmark X6650 Driver for 64-bit. This driver applies to Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows Vista (64-bit), Windows XP Professional (64-bit).

Taskbar fails to load after lexmark x7675 software install

Yes this is a problem that occurs with some new Lexmark printers. There is a patch that fixes it on the Lexmark website. You'll need to install the driver first then apply the patch.
There is an article on the Lexmark website explaining the issue ENUS32208
I think it has something to do with enabling "Sharing" the printer from Windows. You don't turn that on if you are connecting the printer wireless - multiple computers can still use the printer. You may not need the patch if you leave sharing turned off.

XP refuses to restart after installing printer

It’s not uncommon for software to mess up during installation.
Or even have a bad CD. (Please make sure you're windows XP software is up to date, run windows update service).
Since you are able to get into windows, open control panel, open add/remove programs & uninstall the Lexmark printer software. After uninstall restart the PC. Power on the printer before windows loads. See if windows runs with the printer connected & powered on. Less Its driver software. Windows should see the printer & ask for the software. (If so, it may be corrupted software). Go to Lexmark for driver software & download it.
Try reinstalling using the online driver software for the X3550 printer. If it still stops you're windows, I would suggest replacing the USB cable. If replacing the cable does not help & windows does not load, there could be something wrong with the printer.
If this is a new printer you should contact Lexmark.
Lexmark will suggest all of the above. You'll be three steps ahead of support. Lastly, I have come across an issue from time to time installing printers software into Windows XP systems.
(It matters not the printer model). Windows was missing basic printer files needed to operate any given printer. The fix for those systems was a complete fresh install of windows. Its suggested to never use a copied windows CD. It matters.

Good Luck electrics!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
There is rarely 1 way to fix every thing.

I am going crazy...

Removing the software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

1. Unplug the camera from the computer. Later you will be prompted by the software to plug in the camera; do so at that time only.
2. Open the Windows Control Panel.
3. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
4. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.

Now download the latest version of the software for your OS from the manufacturer's website.

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next , do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
