What Model is the Lexmark printer?

Do you have an installation CD for the printer? What is the version?

Is the printer software already installed on the PC?

Is there a phone line connected to the printer?

Does the telephone line come straight from the wall to the printer?

Has the telephone line already been tested with a telephone to make sure you have a dial tone on the line?

Sub Zero has went off line. But, I can help you from here.

That type of printer does not do fax. You need an "All-in-one" type printer for faxing.

However, with windows 7 OS, there is a program installed called Welcome Fax.

Just type "Welcome Fax" into search. Click on "Welcome fax" and follow the install instructions.

ok found that but it says to plug phone into computer and when I do that I have no dial tone. there is a plug in on the side of my vaio but no dial tone when I do this

I do have a all in one Lexmark X2230. I have been in chat with Lexmark and they say there is a place to plug in my phone on the machine but there is not. they keep insisting there is but I have turned it upside down and inside out to find the plug and there none. (ok exagerating when I say inside out...LOL)

Is the other end of the phone cable plugged into a working wall telephone jack? Are you sure it isn't plugged into the network port on your laptop? You could check Device Manager to make sure you have a modem installed on your laptop.
