    I guess I know now why they are trying to give them away! Just bought new HP laptop and got the Lexmark X2580 as a promotion. I can loaded software, see printer (in control panel) sometimes, and sometimes it will show a print que but the pinter will not print. Switched ports, cables, loaded and un-installed several times, NO LUCK. I did load another pinter on my laptop to compare and it works fine. Any suggestions?

Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

The printer will not communicate with my computer


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Computer not communicating with printer


You stated that you just got a new computer and are trying to hook up your old printer to it. Here is the Lexmark website to download new drivers for the VISTA? operating system driver for your printer. Use the control panel printer install along with the new downloaded driver.Whee asked where the driver is, just let it know where you placed it. I would first uninstall the printer .

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

Computer will not communicate with printer


Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.

Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.
