Can't load printer Driver in WinXP


I've been unable to complete the re-installation of the printer driver for this MFP. I'll uninstall the software; however, when I attempt to reinstall the driver (by itself or with the other selected software) the installation program loops through the message box indicating that the USB cable must be removed before the software can continue. The USB cable is not connected to the computer or the printer at this point. This problem persists even after a reboot. The USB drivers are shown as enabled without problem in the device manager, too. The operating system is Win XP. I don't have a clue as to how to correct this problem.

Re: Can't load printer Driver in WinXP

Uninstall the printer and unplug any other USB printers you have restart you PC and then try installing if this doesn't work then the driver has not been completely removed in the system registry. You will have to do this manually but I do not know the correct fields for this printer.

Thanks J

What is the version of your Mac operating system? It would be best that you uninstall any existing printer driver first > reboot your computer > then reinstall the printer driver.

Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5470 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > click on "FILTER" > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

Then try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

First you can dowload the driver for Windows Vista from here:
then uninstall the old drivers by going to control panal uninstall programs. Then reboot pc, make sure usb link is not connected. Start the install software for your x8350 it will let you know when to hook up the USB link and auto finsh the install.

Note: If you do not use the CD to install your Fax software will not be installed. If you call Lexmark they will send you a new CD for Vista 800-539-6275

Remove printer from Computer.
Uninstall ALL HP printer software, and drivers.

Try re-installing from scratch.

(Worked for Win98 SE, WinME and WinXP)

(better yet, go back to Win98 SE, or WinXP :) )
