W7 and printer difficulties

Hello,

I changed recently my computer and try to install my printer Lexmark Z1400. Found the driver on the web (the 64 one) but I get a yellow indicator submitting a problem on the icon of the printer. It is impossible to do anything with this icon and when I try to solve the problem, Windows tell me "no problem found".

Got an idea ? Thank you, Hl14

Does the printer work? That icon could be something as simple as "Low Toner".

Printer is OK, connected to my wifi net (green light ok) but when I try to print, the computer tell me "no printer installed".

oh I see... Did you install the printer to your local TCP/IP port via ip address?


or did it show up when "searching" for printer in add/remove printer wizard?

There should be a way to have your printer print out it's IP address. Like maybe a self test or somethig.
