    I installed the CD software for my lexmark 5400s series but every time I try to print (after my default printer has been set to the one installed) it either doesn't respond or an error message pops up.

If you have OSX, the computer already has the drivers, do not use the ce, just connect the printer via usb, make sure the power cable is connected, turn the printer on, restart the computer.
After the reboot, go to the apple in the top left, select SYSTEM PREFS, select PRINTING and FAX, add a printer based on the model number. That should do it, if not, let me know, you may need 2 more steps.

Go to (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Add a device) Check for connected devices. You can also go to (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Add Printer > Local) check the USB1, 2, 3 options is available for using an existing port. The options are LPT1, 2, 3 (Printer Port) | COM1, 2, 3, 4 (Serial Port) | FILE (Print to File) | TPVM (Thin Print) | XPSPort. Select the appropriate port and try it…..

What appears to be fine on the outside may not reflect whats going on inside. Before you spend more money try this, it can't hurt.

Try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Dear Shiona, Uninstall the printer from your computer, and use new usb cable, install the cable in other usb port and then turn on the computer. Go to the "Add new printer" option from the control panel-printer. and install the driver properly.

Printing from Mac os X 10.4.10


Here was the way I got it to work on my Mac: Set up the printer with a static IP address. Then add it as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printer. Specify L2 as the queue for a USB printer. (L1 is the parallel port).

(This took me a while to figure out - I couldn't get IPP or AppleTalk to work properly).
