Can't install 2500 Lexmark printer to a Gateway desktop computer

Has nothing to do with who manufacturer of your is simply a "windows System" that's all that's relevant. What version of windows are you using? Perhaps it is Vista, and you are using an installation disc that is not compatible with Vista. Go to the Lexmark website and download from there. Not a bad idea even if you have a compatible disc...there may be a problem with it, if it is giving you errors.
Please provide more info on the problem your having, if the above doesn't help.

Unable to install scanner

Cant find such a scanner, are you sure of the model "performance", If it is not Vista compatable, ie if Epson have not released a Vista driver, then it is not going to work with Vista.

See Epson web and download driver if available, if not change scanner or operating system or purchase software

Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your driver and other software.

If your Epson CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista. Instructions for installing additional software from your CD may be available with your driver download.

Note: If you already have ArcSoft PhotoImpression™ 5 installed on your Windows Vista computer, you may need to install a "patch" program. Go to the ArcSoft website to download and install the patch.

Products that are not Vista compatable are not capatable with Vista, who would figure hey!!
