i am getting the above message intermittently. printer connected via USB 2 running win98SE.
Ive spoken to lexmark (as much use as a chocolate fireguard) who say its either the usb cable is too long, (standard cable),or not enough ram (512MB!!!!!!)and to plug printer into its own power socket ( done that)
I have downloaded latest software as well.
When the problem occurs there is a yellow exclamation mark in device manager saying device unknown.
Please help my daughter has homework to print off and is back to school tomorrow
Try disconnecting the USB cable from the printer end. Remove the driver from your PC and the printer as well. Install the software again and then connect the USB cable into the printer, or when the driver install tells you to.
Will the printer run from USB1.1 or does it need version 2.0? Does your motherboard have USB2.0 ports or are you using a USB PCI card? If the latter, have you installed the driver for the card so that 98se will recognise it?
