Re: Cannot install Lexmark on my desktop

64MB of ram might be too little if you are working with a PC. With RAM prices not too bad I would suggest a 512MB for the machine.

That will probably allow you to install the printer. At 64MB for a PC you are just asking for trouble.

When installing, the setup program says that I have no memory in my computer.

When installing the Lexmark software, your computer has to meet the minimum requirements (most importantly the hard disk space and RAM size). Most probably the RAM of your computer has no more available space to accommodate the Lexmark software. You might want to upgrade the RAM size of your computer.

I am trying to install a X5070 and it says under system requirements that I don't have enough processor speed. Help


Unfortunately, if you cpu/processor is not fast enough you will need to upgrade the cpu to the minimum requirements.

NOTE: Your motherboard also needs to support the minimum cpu required. You can refer to the manual to see if it will. If not, you may need to replace the motherboard also.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages

Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
