Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
You will be having a USB cable that connects the printer to your PC or notebook. I believe you have an internet connection that is always on. Once you connect the printer to the PC or notebook and if you have windows vista, the printer software will be automatically downloaded and installed. If you are not using Windows Vista, here are some links for the printer drivers.
To my knowledge, the Lexmark X75 is not Vista compatible and the Lexmark site does not list any drivers for this
model. Further I was made to understand that they have no plans of coming
up with Vista drivers for "discontinued" products. Sorry.
Offhand, am afraid your only option is for the purchase of a Vista compatible printer.
Alternately, you can try;
Vista supposedly has drivers for many printers pre-installed, though
they are very basic and often will not allow other features to function
fully, you can try auto-detect/install. The idea is to connect your
printer to the PC/Laptop without installing the XP driver CD and 'keep
your fingers crossed'; or
Force a bare install. Pop in the XP CD
but do not install (exit). Rather, open the contents of the CD and look
for an ".inf" file, right click to install and see if Vista will take
it from there. There night be a couple of them inside the CD.
If your X75 still did not install by either alternative method, guess it will have to be a new printer..
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Here is the link to the drivers and software:
You didn't specify which OS you have so after you connect to this site select you Operating System (OS) and then download the driver/s listed. They only listed X7500 and X7550. If this is not correct you simply need to search the site for a X75.
I suggest you save the drivers in a folder you will create first then open the file.
1.) make a folder named Lexmark X7500 on your desktop.
2.) Then download the file to it.
3.) Then open the folder and open the file.
4.) Follow the instructions it creates.
You may need to buy the cd from Lexmark but as long as you have the drivers and any software they provide you should be OK.
