1st go into the control panel and make sure that your printer in completely uninstalled and is not listed. Turn your computer off, connect your printer to the computer and reboot the computer. It should recognize the new device. Usually it will go through the steps of installing the printer. Follow the instuctions on the screen. If you have the software it may ask that you insert it if it doesn't have the correct drivers. If you don't have the software and the drivers are not listed then you will need to go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for your printer and use it for the re-install. If you need more detailed instructions let me know.

I have lost my disk to my lexmarkx2470


Go to

http://support.lexmark.com/ and enter your pinter's model number. Download the appropriate driver and re-install it.

To reinstall/update your driver in Windows,

First, turn off and disconnect the printer from your computer.

Install the driver downloaded from Lexmark and follow the onscreen instructions. (At some point it will tell you to connect the printer and turn it on)

If the driver installation procedure fails,

RIGHT-CLICK on My Computer and choose "Properties" from the context menu.

Select the "Hardware" tab.

Select the "Device Manager" button.

Expand the "Printers" subheading and select your printer.

CLICK on the "Properties" button.

CLICK on the "Reinstall Driver" button and allow Windows to find the driver you just installed and reinstall it.

If THAT does not work, go back to the Device Manager>Printers section and highlight your printer. Press the Delete key on your keyboard and then  confirm that you want to remove the printer.

Leave the printer on and reboot your computer. Windows should now find your printer and reinstall the software for it "automagically".

Printer reinstalling


Go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for your specific printer. Use this to try and reinstall. Windows will usually try to reinstall the drivers it already has whether they are damaged or not unless you tell it otherwise.
