Lexmark X6170 cannot install printer

LLexmark X6170 cannot install printer. I get a "New Hardware Found" message every time I boot up my PC with XP 2. All used to work well, but now only scanner and copier bits work. I tried installing latest downloaded driver but no luck, only 'user cancelled' message.
Any ideas, gurus and wizzes?

Ok, could be a conflict error. Try downloading a safe program called revo uninstaller. It will remove very tiny traces of old installations of printers behind, completely off. Did you swap OS from another or just an upgrade. Obviously you pc is finding the hardware, but it is not loading properly. Are you sure your driver is correct for OS and printer specs. Once all traces of old driver and printer is gone, try reinstalling from scratch. If this fails, try redownloading driver as first download could be corrupt, this does happen. If no good, post back and we'll look again. good luck, lilacgerry xxx

My Lexmark x6170 all-in-one Printer will not scan


I have the same printer, Windows Vista, and also only use the device drivers, but do not experience the problem you are having. The only problem I have with it is that scanning using MS Office 2007 times out before the image can completely transfer. So uninstalling your existing drivers and then reinstalling may do the trick.

If you still wish to install the All-In-One Center software, Lexmark will only provide the device drivers, as you have discovered. However, there are reports that the Lexmark X6100 series AIO (All-In-One) is identical to the Dell A960 AIO. And, fortunately, Dell is kind enough to provide the similar All-In-One Center software.

Click here for the 32-bit Windows XP version. (just in case)
Click here for the 32-bit Windows Vista version.

Give it a try and please report back as to whether or not it worked for you.

You will need to go on-line and find the Windows Vista download for the drivers and software for the item you are installing. After installing; re-start computer and see if printer prints.

LEXMARK ALL IN ONE X6170


I do not know what operating system you are using, But most including Windows Vista and Windows XP are plug and play. That means that they will detect and set up your printer automatically. If it does not do so, when you connect the printer, just go into control panel and select add new hardware.

In the unlikely event that you do need the printer driver, you can download it on this page online at http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/selections.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:-1:0:0&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&&req=:::-1::

good luck!
