    I have just purchased a Lexmark X1100 SERIES all in one printer and am having difficulties in installing it.

    Computer is an Evesham Evolution 3000 running XPhome 512 mg mem

    Tried several times uninstalling everything and starting again.
    The installation screens persistently say can't communicate with the printer
    and will not proceed further.
    Checked all cables which are of course new with printer.It goes dingdong when plugged in so assume cable is ok.Installation also says can't locate drivers on installation disc.Down loaded from Lexmark webbsite will install but printer still will not work.Printer program says its printing but it's not

    Lexmark say no problem with their printer as self tests ok. Must be a port problem as the installation program indicates a usb hub in the new devices entry in Device Manager.If it is deleted it returns on next installation attempt.

    Evesham say uninstall the device select option to scan for new hardware and this will install correct drivers Port must be ok as other hardware works with it.
    New hardware installation screens say can't find drivers on installation disk

    The USB connection is direct to the motherboard and is USB2
    Only other thing connected to USB connection is Broadband modem. Camera works perfectly when connected.

    Could it be thet the new usb cable it faulty.

    Dont know what to do next
