Has anyone had any trouble downloading the software from the disc provided? Cause everytime i download the program ,when it`s just about to finish it bleeps then freezes.I car`nt do end task ,nothing.Then i have to go into safe mode and remove the program ,cause it freezes again on start up again.When i`ve removed the program the comp is ok again.

Try cleaning the disk. If that doesn't work, contact Lexmark for a replacement disk.

Make sure your antivirus is disabled while you load the utility disc.click here

on the main sheet to install software it says to put disc in first .I`ll try it after all of the new hardware is found screens have been canncelled .As it says on the lexmark forum.And i`ll clean the disc as well.I did close the anti virus before as well.
I`ll let you know how i go on>

Have you deleted any other printer software recently ?

Try running ccleaner to have a clean up click here

Then reboot and try again.

If you have removed any other printer software,it may be possible that the obsolete registry paths are causing conflicting.

Tried ccleaner as you suggested skidzy but to no avail.Always gets to the same place downloading software ,then bombs out. When it gets to the second stage ,it hangs.The curser moves then the whole lot freezes if you click more than three times.Won`t let you end task neither at any time.

I think its going to be as VoG™ suggest's,a new disc.

It maybe a corrupt disc,or just something on your pc conflicting with the install.

On a point of curiosity, have you tried installing via XP and see if that finds the printer?.

  ilsonmuppet 15:49 19 Dec 2006

I`ll try that way spuds to see it works.
