Question about Lexmark X2550 All-In-One Printer
I contacted Lexmark about the problem and they said, " Click on the "Hardware" tab. Go to the "Device Manager" button. Click on the "+" next to "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." The host controller listed here is the software that runs your USB ports. It is linked to a chipset on the motherboard that requires frequent updates to satisfy the needs of newer products, such as your printer.
Look at the name of the host controller. Some of the more common names are Ali, Intel, AMD, Via, and SIS. You may have to contact your PC manufacturer to get help updating these specific controllers to the newest driver set.
Mine says Intel but on Intels' site it says they don't provide updates because they come from Microsoft. I have several listed on my Device manager and don't know what to do.
Please help before I get frustrated and return the whole thing for a refund. This is more trouble than the printer cost. I am running Windows XP with service pack 2
I had the same problem with a lexmark printer. I went into device manager and deleted the software and the printer, i plugged in the printer then reinstalled the software. I did have to manually search for a file on the disk itself before it would install completely. if this happens, where it says cannot locate file, hit the browse button and in the browse window, look for the missing file. it may take a little xeploring to find it, but once you do it oughtta work. I hope this helps, Matt(firstname.lastname@example.org)

Tips for a great answer:
Another quick fix for most communication errors can be
achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect
the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer
into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to
your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the
I hope this helps.
