x74 - x75, whats an operating system? do u mean w98?

To check the All-In-One status and the printer default setting:

Windows 98 and Windows Me users only

1 Open the Printers folder.

2 In the Printers folder, right-click the Lexmark X74-X75 icon.

3 Make sure: Set as Default is selected.
Pause Printing is not selected.

I have the same printer but on XP. The above is from the help file...I would say check the above.

Did you install the supplied driver disks etc. The copy and scan set-up on the Lexmark are able to work without the computer.Would appear as though you have not set up the machine as per instructions. Try using the W98 hardware install, and see if this reconizes the printer.

X75 cannot be used as a stand alone copier. The computer has to be turned on for that the copier to work...

The X85 allows copying without the computer turned on.

Does it recognise the printer and scanner as separate things?

If it does then check the port for the printer in it's settings.

I believe that it is essential that you remove your old printer(s) driver(s) first.

With Windows 98 and the Lexmark x75, have them both switched on and then RIGHT click MY COMPUTER/ click Properties/ click Device Manager.
If the printer is connected OK the Scanner will appear under "Imaging Device" as Lexmark X74/X75 and under "USB printers" as Ink Jet Colour Printer.
Is your machine showing up in the Device Manager??
