Question about Lexmark X3550 All-In-One Printer
I purchased a computer w/ Vista had too many problems w/ it so I purchased and reformatted my computer to XP SP2 I went to install the printer and now it reads when trying to scan downloading Application list. It looks like its about to start up then reads Cannot retrieve Application list anyone know what to do to resolve this?
My updates to the printer automatically downloading to a C:// drive for my hard drive which was labled H:// after the format. I had to reformat the computer partitions after backing up my hard drive to disk and relabeling the Hard drive back to C:// once the updates were installed to the correct drive the scanner downloaded the needed updates and began working. if anyone needs to know how to reset your partitions in the hard drive, all you do is after inserting your boot/install windows disk at the time of asking were to install windows a setup window will appear on the screan. at that time you may install another version of windows or delete the partition by pushing F2 to format, or in any case at the bottom will lable correct button to push to format the desired partitions. REMEMBER ONCE DOING THIS ALL YOUR INFORMATION ON THE COMPUTER WILL BE DELETED! So I strongly urge you do back up all information. THIS INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS! if you do not back up your drivers you will loose essential data to run your computer again including your network controller adapter<-- this is needed to get online it is basically your ethernet/ internet port which you may want especially to download the new drivers to other programs Video drivers etc. The Whole process is a couple of hours to complete but if you can take the risk in trying this you'll save yourself time and money getting ripped off to have someone else do it. Where by the way charges are incured with system diagnostic runs to make sure places of computer programming and system tech supports are covered if anything is to go wrong with the computer. then youll laugh when you see the bill after not having a computer for a week!

Tips for a great answer:
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by
resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer
from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and
re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns
on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again
once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on
the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:
