The way I solved my problem was I uninstalled my Lexmark printer completely from my computer, and reinstalled it. Then went to Lexmark.com and updated my driver. After doing this and restarting my computer, everything seemed to run fine.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
It could be that your cartridge needs cleaning. On your computer, go to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark 6100 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. Go to Maintenance tab > select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again and determine if the problem is fixed.
Check the USB cable to make sure it is connected, then restart your computer. Sometimes the computer registers it on a different USB port. When you go to print look at your printer options, is there a Lexmark and a Lexmark (copy 1)? Try printing from Lexmark (copy 1) if it is showing. If there is still a problem, try putting the print on another computer, to see if the printer is malfunctioning. If that is the case, you'll need to get another printer.
I am hoping that you have you original install disk or that the windows has a driver installed alread as I believe that the Lexmark website no longer supports your printer. If you still have the install disk;
Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Remove (Delete) the printer(software)from the computer .
Reinstall the printer and software , if not a part of windows already.
sounds like your printers settings have accidentally been set to print a smaller area. When you print, look into the area that says page settings or properties before you print, you may find the settings altered. If the settings are set to print full page, then post back as we will need to explore other issues. Cheers lilacgerry
