Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer

I recently upgraded my home computer to Windows 7. Today I downloaded new drivers for my printer Lexmark X2500 (paid $39.95). My printer does not work. Do I now have to uninstall my printer and reinstall?

    I did exactly what you told me to do. I get a message CAN'T CREATE OUTPUT FILE: C\LEXMARKDIVES\2500\INSTALL\X86\ENGINE.DLL

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    I don't know if you got my last message. My printer still won't work. What else do I have to do?

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    This is in response to your second message. My computer still says can't create output file. Do I need to reload my installation disk for this printer?

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    I have both download paths you gave me. I get the same response. Yes I would like help.

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    how much longer do I need to wait for help with my printer?

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    I can't seem to get a response from GOODGUY008. I have tried his solutions, they don't work, and I told him I wanted his help. It's been several minutes and I have not heard from him. I've been battling with this problem since about 1 pm today since asking for help. What is happenning?

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    This is the same solution the person ahead of you prescribed. It didn't work then and it not's working now. The first guy gave me two different links to download. I did. It still didn't work. He offered on screen help but I couldn't get him to respond to my message of HELP. Anyway I started a session of uninstalling Lexmark and the progress is not moving. I think it's because there is nothing there to uninstall. I tried the link you gave in your message and it told me it was an invalid address. I really am not liking you guys' response to my problem,

  • Carolynn Lackey Nov 13, 2009

    I am NOT happy with you guys. Your solution did not work either. I want you to stop working on my problem. I will be cancelling my membership.

You need to unplug the USB cord that connects the printer to the PC, uninstall all drivers, then reboot. After rebooting, plug the printer back in using the USB cord. Windows 7 will conduct a search for the proper driver. If you have the driver on a CD or on your machine, direct Windows to the destination where the driver can be found. From there it should install your driver and your printer should now be functioning. Hope this helps with your printer problem.

ps Here is a link to the Windows 7 driver for your machine:

The Lexmark X2500 all-in-one multifunction printericon1.png, discontinued as of May 2011, will not install on Windows Vista or Windows 7 using the installation disc. The installation disc predates the newer editions of the Windows operating system and so you will run into difficulty when trying to install the printer. Lexmark has released up to date drivers on their website. Once you have downloaded the drivers, you can install the printer and begin using the device.

I lost the installation cd for my lexmark x2500, my desktop has been upgraded from windows xp to windows 7, how do i install the printer to it?

You can download the drivers from Lexmark's support website at the following link:

Make sure to select the correct version of your operating system (Windows 7 x32 or Windows 7 x64) and then you can download the software.

If you're not sure whether you're using Win 7 32 or 64, go to your Start menu, right-click on Computer and select Properties. It should tell you on the first screen which version you're using.

Hope this is helpful!

Why does windows 7 not read my lexmark 2500 printer

Maybe the driver installed is not compatible with the computer's operating system. I suggest you install the Windows 7 Lexmark X2500 driver from the Lexmark website. You may need to uninstall the existing driver before installing the new driver. To download: first, check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Then download the driver using this link: (for 32-bit) or this link: (for 64-bit). Check if it's working now. If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.
