I am having problems connecting my wireless printer (Lexmark X4550) to my Dell Vostron 1500 laptop. I am running Vista. I have been able to connect it to my husband (XP) and daughter's (Vista) laptop, but it won't print from mine. I have done everything the same as the other two connections. I think it is the printer port. It does not recognise the same port as the other two laptops. Help!
There are no other printers linked to this laptop. I don't know if I am installing as an administrator. I just put the disc in and following the on screen instructions. I did the same on my daughters and it worked.
Vista seems to have unique problems on every system it appears...
OK, put the CD in, hold the Shift key down to stop it auto-running. Now right click the CD in Computer to explore it. Look for a file called Autorun.exe or Setup.exe (they may not have the extension if you don't have that option enabled). Right click the file and select Run As Administrator.
