I don't have installation cd of lexmark x2450. how can i do it to install?


Any drivers you need can be found on the lexmark website. Note that some printers need the software installed before hooking up the printer. I'd try to install the printer first. The software will tell you if the printer needs to be connected.

I lost my installation disc and need to install my printer..Please help!!


Try downloading the printer driver from the internet. Just go to the website of the printer's maker and from there you can search for the printer's model number. They have online support and downloads for products they have released in the market.

I need to connect a 34oo series lexmark printer to a dell comp. xp


Not sure how much I can help you.

*Turn computer off.
*Plug printer into a port on the back of your computer. There are very few ports so you should be able to find one that makes your printer plug. Plug printer into power strip/outlet.
*Turn computer back on.
*Keep printer off for now. During installation it should tell you to turn the printer on.
*Put the CD that came with the printer into the cd/dvd drive. A menu should appear. You want to "Install" or "Setup" your printer. Something along those lines. Follow the instruction from there.
*After successful installation of the printer restart the computer.

That is as basic as I can make it. I hope this helps.
Thanks.

I have got a problem with my printer hp photosmartc4180 series it wont let me print i try different situations now i have contacted hp they say it needs cleaning by compaq


What happens when you try to print?
1. When you try to print do you see the printer icon on the taskbar? (lower right)
2. Do you see the printer in your printers folder?(start/settings/control panel/ printers) Might need installed
3. Is the printer your default printer? (right click on the printer in the above area and select "set as default printer")
4. Is it plugged in, turned on and plugged into your computer?
5. Has the software been installed or recently updated?
Let me know if this helps

I seem to have lost the disc to install my printer


Well it all depends on what type of printer it is. Most printing companies don't give a disc with their printer. Mainly because they are supposed to install automatically when plugged in. If your computer asks for a disc, maybe it needs one to install the printer. try contacting the company who mad the printer. You never know if they forgot to put the disc in when they packed it. If that is the case, they probably will be more than happy to give you another disc.

Hope this helps!

I bought a lexmark x5495 printer I have a compaq pc with vista and norton anti-virus, The pc will not recognise the printer, Lexmark have been no help at all, they keep giving me things to try and nothing...


You need to install teh software from disk before connecting the printer.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printerdoes not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Printer won't connect


I think you need to press on the (Have a Disk) button and install your printer cd - which came with the package - into the CD-Drive

when you open your CD-Directory, the needed info file will be automaticlly selected, all you need to do is pressing (open) button and then (next) from the printer installing wizard.

Hope that was helpful.
