Windows 7: Printer Problems

Printer Problems

Hi guys!

I've just finished slaving away on my homework and then transferring it to my printing PC (by email) just to find that my printer doesn't work. My Printer is a Lexmark X2550 and I've installed the latest drivers from Lexmarks website and from when Windows Action Centre recommended it. But when I send anything to print the usual print window pop up from Lexmark Imaging Studio but nothing comes out of the printer. Lexmark Imaging Studio recognises that it's connected but nothing prints. At first the progress bar got stuck at 15%, but then I installed the drivers that Windows Action Centre recommended. After that it completes the printing, but still nothing comes out of the printer.
And this happens with any document.

My homework deadline is in two days so I'm desperately searching for a solution! Any help is greatly appreciated.

In case you cannot get your printer up in time, I suggest you print to an XPS document, move that to an SD card or USB stick and print it at a friends system or in an internet cafe. At least you then do not miss your deadline.
Unfortunately I have no immediate solution for your printer problem. Try printing with CTL+P.

I don't doubt this is the driver you have already installed, and tried, but to be on the safe side I thought I better check.
That's one mean PC you have there !
You could try system restore, then installing, if these are later drivers.

It's the little things that give us most of the headaches. I'm glad you were able to fix it in time. Hope you get a good grade for your homework.
