Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Inability to print

I tried hooking my HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop which has XP Home Edition installed to my Lexmark X83 and it will not print. Says it may not be compatible to the XP and Microsoft recommends not linking the two. I tried it anyway, installing the software and attempting to print but it keeps telling me no. What can I do short of buying a newer printer?

I chunked it and hooked up another spare printer we had in the house. Life is too short for tinking around with frustrating things like this. Thanks anyway.

Can not install on windows vista basic


I am not sure of your question. Lexmark model x83 has drivers only for Win Xp and  Win 2,000.    Unless they. Lexmark elect to have their software people write or develop a driver for Win VISTA for this model printer ,no one else ever will. Maybe call or write to them.  Their is a 20% off printer upgrade offer on a VISTA compatable printer.
 Your other option is to downgrade to WIndows Xp. I personally see no advantages to  VISTA , at least for me. Xp is much faster.

Spooler not running after Lexmark x83 installation on windows XP laptop


From what you're saying the windows print spooler service is not starting following the installation of your printer (and thereby you cannot print i'm assuming)

try the following to start the print spooler service if it is not already running.
Click Start
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click "Services and Applications"
Click Services
Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and double click on it to open up the properties page
where it says "startup type" select automatic from the combo box list
Apply
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
click OK

The print spooler service is started now, and **should** work properly. If the spooler is still not starting properly, then you may have a driver issue and i reccommend uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer.

My windows vista Business cannot install my Lexmark X83 All-in-one printer!


Lexmark is not officially making any driver for the X83 that will work with Vista because its a 32 bit printer and Vista is 64 bit. Sounds like some BS to me. So, I have the same problem, a perfectly working printer and an incompatible OS. My Mom was using an old mac and had an X83 printer which she loves. She now has a new PC running Vista. Only now, I have the problem of how to get the X83 to work with Vista. Supposedly the lexmark 5200 drivers will work. My suggestion is to power off and unplug the USB cable to the X83, and manually remove any driver(s) related to it that may have been installed using the system control panel device manager. Then attempt to install the xp driver for X83 per the post below. I'm going to then plug in the USB cable and power up the printer and see if it works (it probably won't) but I'm hoping it'll then cue itself looking for the 5200 series drivers which supposedly do work according to one post on MS forum, I quote:

"After reading all these posts I was both discouraged, but more determined than ever to get my X83 to run on Vista. I have to say the determination payed off! That's right...I just both scanned and printed 7 pages on my X83 running on Vista!!!! Here's what I did. I first installed the XP driver for X83 hoping I could dumb my laptop down to make it run on an XP version....no luck there, but when I did that, my laptop recognized the X83 as a Lexmark 5200 series which is also an all in one. I thought, well, if that's what it wants, that's what I will give it. If you go to the Lexmark website and look under downloads/drivers, there is a list that shows all compatible OS. The 5200 series is listed here with a Vista compatible driver. Once I downloaded it and went through the installation wizard....it worked LIKE A DREAM!!!! I hope this helps all of you as I also understood and felt your frustrations! Good luck!!!"
