    I just got my Lexmark X5400 and I can't get it to install either. It asks for a windows XP Home file on CD. My XP came already installed and I don't have any disks. I have restore disks but that's not going to do me any good. This isn't the first time I've run into a problem because my software was preloaded. I will never again buy a computer that has programs installed and they don't give you the disks. I read something about trying to install from the Lexmark website. If it works I'll come back and tell you.

    Me too. I have a collection of printers from Lexmark. The first one that I bought would not feed the paper through, so I was sent another from Lexmark technical assistence. I now have a total of three printers from Lexmark that do not work. The last two printers will make copies independendtly, but not print from the computer. According to my computer, the printer is not turned on or connected with a USB cable. I have tried two different USB cable without any luck. I'm about to go buy an HP printer

You have to buy a USB cable. It is written on the box itself.

Try this approach instead:
  1. Uninstall your existing printer software from your computer. From your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X5400 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall.
  2. After the uninstall process, reboot pc when prompted.
  3. When pc turns back on, check if your system is running on 32-bit or 64-bit. From your computer, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > click on Properties. Take note of the System Type.
  4. To re-install the printer software, please visit the Lexmark website. Use the link below:
- Lexmark X5470 Driver for Windows 7 32-bit- Lexmark X5470 Driver for Windows 7 64-bit

Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.
I hope this helps.

I give the order print and nothing happenes


Have you tried disabling the anti-virus, will it print? If not, uninstall the Lexmark software properly by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > All Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then, restart pc. I suggest you install the updated driver available for download in the Lexmark website (I assume you have the Lexmark X7170 and your computer's running on Windows XP). Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/dxFJ36. Download the software. When installing, just to make sure, disable any firewall and your anti-virus temporarily. For the fax and the scan software, you can use the installation cd to install them back. Leave a comment if you need more assistance. Thanks.

Printer isnt working its lexmark x5400 series cant find software thet i had that came with it


Hello,

You can dowload the software from Lexmark. Go to:

Lexmark X5470 Support

Click on the Downloads tab. Select the file that matches your operating system and click on Download Now. When the download window opens, select Save and direct it to save to your Desktop. Once the download is complete, close all open programs, make sure you uninstall any previous Lexmark software and delete any X5400 printer using Control Panel>Printers.

Install the printer using one of the Setup Guides that can be found on the support link above. (Click on the Publications tab.) When it says to insert the CD, simply run (double-click) the file on your desktop that you downloaded. That should get you going.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cd driver faild


Try unpluging the printer and removing any previous printer software. Any anti-virus software off or disabled. After you uninstall old printer software , reboot the computer then install the new drivers. Then turn back on your anti-virus software.With the computer off, plug in your printer and then turn on the computer. The computer should find the new driver and install it. This is for Windows systems. Let me know if it works for you.

Disable anti virus and auto loading programs


I think that suggestion really only applies if you run into problems when trying to install the driver files. Most current antivirus programs will let you load drivers and associated software without interrupting.

If you do run into snags, you can close the programs (or temporarily inactivate them) by right-clicking on the icons on the task bar in the lower right corner of the desktop and selecting 'Close'.

Lexmark x4580 connected via USB will allow printing once when computer started after that comuunication problem error received every time. I have checked all firewall settings on Mcaffee and Windows (all...


1) Disable both firewalls and see if it prints.
2) If it prints, then it's a firewall roblem. Enable your Windows firewall first. If your printer works just leave the McAfee firewall disabled. You don't need both anyway but leave the ant-virus enabled.
3) If it doesn't print with your Windows firewall enabled, try it the other way. Windows firewall disabled, McAfee enabled.
4) If it doesn't print in any of these cases try re-installing the software for your printer.You will want to make sure that McAfee is totally disabled (anti-virus and firewall) and turn off off your Windows firewall. Here are the steps for re-installing software. If you don't have the cd let me know and I'll provide you with a link for it.
Removing and reinstalling the software
If the printer is not functioning properly, or if a communications error message appears when you try to use the
printer, you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

1 Click Start �� Programs or All Programs �� Lexmark 3500-4500 Series.
2 Select Uninstall.
3 Follow the instructions on the computer screen to remove the printer software.
4 Restart the computer before reinstalling the printer software.
5 Click Cancel on all New Hardware Found screens.
6 Insert the CD, and then follow the instructions on the computer screen to reinstall the software.
Note: If the install screen does not appear automatically after you restart your computer, click Start �� Run, and
then type D:\setup, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.

If this fixes your problem please rate this as fixed. If it doesn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you out' I'll be waiting to see how it turns out. Thanks.
