    I have a Lexmark all in one printer, scanner, copier X 1150 and I have it connected to my computer via USB cable and when I try to turn on my computer my computer won't like boot up or anything it just turns on and stays at some black screen so I was wondering if I could get some help

    Try uninstalling it and reinstall it following the vendor's instructions very carefully.

    Did you try it using Safe Mode (F8)?

    What type USB connection? USB2.0? Is comp built with USB2.0, or are you using a card? I had the same prob with my USB 2.0 HD/enclosure running on a USB 2.0 PCI card. Windows loaded normally when the enclosure was not powered up. Have you tried it with the Lexmark connected but shut down? Also try connecting the Lexmark when comp is up and running after driver install, and check device manager for errors.
