Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers
Ink level reporting is a problem for most lexmarks. Check for new software updates. Further I'd need to knwo what type of network is being used or if you are connecting each computer directly to the computer via usb/parallel port. If it is the former (which I assume it is) then you need to make sure that the computer that can't be printed from has the proper permissions to access the printer, and is capable of seeing it on the network. Further, you should check your router's printer control and recognition software if its a Linksys router.

printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
