Dell Inspiron 531 gets me crazy..


hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

hope it helps.

Hi,
You can find the set-up manual of your printer here.....www.lexmark.com/publications/eng/8300/index.html
I need you to make sure that the driver you are using to install the LEXMARK 8300 is compatible with VISTA.
you can download them at, www.driversplanet.com/device.php?id=107349

Before installing the new driver you have to uninstall the old one. If the system is not permitting to uninstall the driver, then try installing the new driver by the following steps:
ensure your printer is connected to your computer and the power is on

 1.) click start / right click computer and select properties
2.) click device manager

3.) Click View then show hidden devices

4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall

5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer

6.) RESTART

7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..

 REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO.



Hope my info will solve your problem, Thanx for using fixya, Good luck.

I had to ask. I wasn't sure if this was Vista CD or what.

I wasn't picking up anything for an 8300 but

This Lexmark link can get you the stuff you need

There is an auto detect link to search your computer for the right model number as well.

Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

I dont know the exact tip for this one. but you can try the following steps to solve this problem.

Download the Windows Vista printer driver for the SCX-4216F multifunction printer from www.samsung.com.
  1. Install the driver on your Windows Vista computer. During installation, you’ll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
  2. After installation completes, open the Printers applet from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
  3. Right-click on the new Samsung SCX-4100 Series printer and choose Properties.
  4. Go to the Ports tab.
  5. Click Add Port…, select Local Port, then click New Port…
  6. For the port name, enter exactly the network path and share name of your printer (e.g. \\RECEPTION\Samsung SCX-4×16 Series).
  7. Click OK, and double-check that this new port is selected with the checkbox next to it.
  8. Click OK to close the printer properties.

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer


Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If you can't follow that link, go to www.lexmark.com. On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.
