Try following this steps:

To add a printer, first follow your printer's instruction manual to assemble your printer and connect it to your computer. When you are ready to install the software, have your printer's CD-ROM or floppy disk handy. Step2Open the Start menu and choose Settings, then Printers. Step3Double-click on Add Printers. Step4Follow the instructions provided by the Print wizard. If you're adding a network printer, be sure to find out its name or network path. To make sure you're using the most recent printer driver, insert your printer CD-ROM or floppy disk when asked. You can also choose a preinstalled driver that matches the printer make and model you're trying to add, but it might be older than a driver that came with the printer. (If you're installing a networked printer, ask your system administrator if there are newer drivers available on the network.) Step5When prompted, indicate whether you want to use this printer as the default. If you have only one printer, you will say yes. If you have two, you must choose which one is to be the default. Step6When asked if you want to print a test page, it is a good idea to say yes. Step7When satisfied, click Finish to complete the installation process. Hope that helps....

How do i install to imac?

From the manufacturer's web-site:

enter 'x3470' and do a search.

Under the 'download' tab, there are no drivers for Mac OS.

So, either the printer is _NOT_ supported, or Mac OS _includes_ the necessary device-drivers.

Just connect it, and see if the iMac recognizes the hardware, and installs the correct device-drivers.

Lexmark X3470 will not scan. OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Have downloaded drivers

The scan software can only be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. It's not included in the downloaded driver online. If you don't have it or you lost the installation cd, I suggest you contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). They will be able to send you one for free.

Old computer died. new computer has Windows 7. Can't get printer to install even though it says it is and status is good. Help!

Try the link "Upgrading to Windows 7?" from this Lexmark support page. This is also where you would download the software for your model and OS.

Lexmark X3470 Downloads

If attempting a reinstallation, uninstall the current printer driver first and follow the "Upgrading to Windows 7?" information.
