Make sure that the printer is properly installed on your computer that's teh first thing you need to do, if its installed properly try to do a test print using the printer utility and see if it will work..
You can also turn the power and turn it back on and try tp do a test print agin ...dont forget to check the connection

COMPUTER IS DIMEMSION 4700C recently changed carries now using verizon wireless, after downloading computer has only 3 % memory, I did call Dell my computer is out of warranty it will be repaired 4 $89.00...


You just have to clear all you temporary files and such. START/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup, allow it to compile and follow the recommendations. Erase Temp files, log files, etc...Compress unused files as well. After that if you are running any type of internet security suite like mcafee or norton, you can clean all history and temporary internet stuff too. Also, in Internet Explorer, under the tools tab you can clear all history as well.
Start/ Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs icon. In here you can compile a list of software that you use and don't use. If you don't know whether or not you use it, don't uninstall it, but if you do uninstall it.
This should clear enough space for ya.

Printer Drivers causing conflict


I had this problem after installing the X7675 and then removing the X7675 startup programs. (I dont use the printer very often so I did not want the processes running until I needed them.) Problem is the Lexmark install maded the Services process dependent on the Spooler. After the change the Spooler was not starting. The Services the waited about 15 minutes before starting.
This link explains how to edit the registry to eliminate the dependency.
It fixed my problem immediately.

Getting device error when trying to connect puter & printer


When you state removed the printer, are you stating you physically unplugged the USB cable, from the printer to the computer, and Uninstalled the printer software? If you have an uninstall option for your printer software, it's best to use it. Add/Remove Programs is the second place you go. (IF no uninstall option is present)
Start>Hover on All Programs>printer software>Uninstall.

Try this:
The printer, Must be physically disconnected from the computer, and the printer should be turned off, and unplugged from power. I'll explain why at the end of this.

Go to Start>Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs>Printer software>Look in the list for uninstall.
Click on uninstall. Follow any instructions. If it asks you are you sure, Yes is the answer. If it asks you if you want to delete any personal settings, or saved settings, Yes you do.
If it asks you if you want to restart your computer, NO you don't.

Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)
Computer off, unplug it from the surge protector. No power to the computer.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of Five seconds. (And I mean Five seconds. Count, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)
Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing, is clearing any CMOS error codes.

Plug the computer back into power. Wait one minute. Turn the computer on. Let Windows fully load up.
Install the printer software CD once more into your optical drive.
Load the printer software.
If it asks you if you wish to restart your computer, Yes you do. If it doesn't ask you, restart your computer anyway.
Once Windows has fully loaded again, and all your programs in the Start menu are finished, plug the printer back into the surge protector. Plug the USB cable back into the computer. Press the Power On button of the printer, and turn it on.

I'm not trying to insult your intelligence in any way, nor your computer prowess. What I believe may have happened here, is that the printer was on, and the USB cable was plugged into the computer, when you went to uninstall and re-install the printer software.

I could be all wrong about this.

When a device is plugged into a computer, Windows recognizes that a new device has been installed.
Windows rushes around, and hurries to find drivers that are compatible with the device. If no drivers are present, Windows matches up it's Generic drivers to that device.

Then THE actual drivers are installed.
Driver conflict results.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Also, if the uninstall option of a software program is not used First, there could be fragmented files of that uninstalled program, floating around in the registry of Windows.
This is why it's best to use an uninstall option for a program, and then if one is not present, use Add/Remove programs.
Would appreciate some feedback on this. Even if it's an "You're all wet"

Format your harddrive (using your Operating Systems installation disk on boot), reinstall your Operating System, and upgrade your RAM if less than 512MB.

Good luck.
