Keep in mind it helps giving information. I'm glad you gave the printer model number. I am guessing you are attempting to connect through USB? Or are you attempting a wireless connection? Also helps to give what Operating System you are using: Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. If you are on Windows, which is my guess, I would say before connecting the USB, insert the driver disc and install that information first before connecting the printer to the computer.
Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.
1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet. 2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on. 3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe 4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen. 5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts. 6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

DO NOT use the Windows 7 Lexmark Driver for the 5400 series on the model X5470 all-in-one! I just assembled a new Win 7 computer and could not get the obvious Win7 64 bit driver to work. I called Lexmark tech support several times, and the third time they conceded that you can't use it. You have to use THIS ONE!
CJS5400en.exe (just for the X5400). Make sure you UNINSTALL COMPLETELY any previous Lexmark printer driver and check the hard drive for any vestiges of previous installations BEFORE installing the new driver...and do NOT use the 'cleaning utility' file that is on the Lexmark site for Win 7 - to clean all bits of former installations first...According to tech support, it doesn't work on Win 7!! I told the tech person that the driver site needs to be more specific on which models use which drivers...he agreed.
you need to download and install the driver program for your printer;
go to this link and select your operating software version
same for this link for the user manual;
Have a read of the manual, follow the installation instructions for the driver, restart your laptop and hopefully all is well.
Any trouble still, please post again so we can try and help more :)
