probably best to system restore to prior what youve just tried.
click here
is the set up sheet and how to correctly install and in the right order.
you will need to get hold of software/driver before connecting up to pc.

Lexmark.Cheaper buying a new printer than buying replacement ink jet cartridges.

Many printers are sold without the USB cable, and I guess that the Argos one is, as it lists a USB cable as an extra for £12.99 - however, you may have a spare cable in your possession
