My own computer has windows xp but because I had to borrow a computer because my computer crashed, i am using vista. I thought that some change might need to be made in order to go from xp to vista. I hope this is useful.

it still shoots the paper out but does not print
OK. If you print this page, does it work?
I am not sure if you received my response: It still did not print. It still shots our the paper without any print.
OK, are you printing from Word, Internet Explorer, etc? If you print this page, does it work?
it still shoots out the pages without the print for every page that I have tried to print.
OK, please make a black copy from the flatbed of the printer, then make a color copy from the flatbed also. Do you get a good black copy and a good color copy as well?
black copy ok color ok
OK, I would like to know if you get the same issue printing from any application, like Word, Internet Explorer, Paint, etc, or if you get the issue from only one application.
from all applications
OK. Have you used the "windows install cleanup" (file "msicuu2.exe") and removed the driver from it?
I used the c cleanup, I have it on my computer but I did not find the file msicuu2.exe. the clean up ran successfully.
Yes, you don't need to run the Clean Up. You need to run the Windows Cleanup Utility. Please let's try with another way. RIGHT CLICK HERE ----> http://tinyurl.com/3whf26r? and click SAVE AS, then save it to your desktop.Then remove the Lexmark printer driver from it. Also, do you have Windows Vista on this computer, am I right?John Cappucci40675.7515535069

since this is not my computer that I am using, I was denied access to transfer that to the administrators side and I can't run it from the guest side
are you still working on this?
If you are not administrator of the computer you cannot install the printer software, unfortunately. You must be administrator in order to install programs, software, etc, like the printer for example.
I did install the printer in order for the computer to recognize it and also the printer would not shot the pages out, it would not receive any command to do anything at all. correct???
I understand, but in order to isolate any issue, we need to install the newest software following me previous answer from an administrator account. That's the way Windows work.
I have the pass word, can you vpn? if you have the ip
when you gave the instructions to uninstall and reinstall, I did the reinstall on the administrators side.
when you gave the instructions to uninstall and reinstall, I did the reinstall on the administrators side.should I uninstall it on both sides and reinstall again on the admin side?
You should uninstall and reinstall on the administrator's side, using first the "Uninstall feature" of Windows and then the Windows CleanUp utility, then try to print from the administrator side. Does it work?
ok, i'll try it
Thank you! please keep me posted
ok, I have uninstalled and reinstalled on the admin side, now I should run the cclean up utility, correct
ok, I have uninstalled and reinstalled on the admin side, now I should run the cclean up utility, correct what are you calling the utility
did you get my request to refund? I have to go.
We can continue later also if you want. Just add this page to your favorites and come back when you have time. I have spent a lot of time trying to help you. I think I deserve a second chance :-) And, no, you should uninstall, then run the clean up utility, and then reinstall. :-(To download the clean up utility RIGHT CLICK HERE ----> http://tinyurl.com/3whf26r? and click SAVE AS, then save it to your desktop.Then remove the Lexmark printer driver from it.John Cappucci40675.8254488773

OK, thank you
ok, I uninstalled , ran the cleaner and then installed. Now I am getting the message that This printer is designed to work with USB cables only. The current software setting is not set to usb port.make sure you are using a usb cable and the printer is set to a usb port
Hello. When you install the software, make sure to select USB when prompted.
are u there
Hello, yes. When you install the software, make sure to select USB when prompted.
I have tried to do this two more times since I last talked with you and I am now getting the message that the printer is not installed.
Please click Start, Control Panel, Printers and let me know what printers do you see listed there. Thank youJohn CappucciComputer Science Engineer
the lexmark is not listed, only my sons printer.
OK. When you install the Lexmark software, you get a message like "Installation successful" or similar?
Is this your computer with Windows XP now? or the Vista one? Also, does the computer prints fine to your son's printer?
this is the vista, and it is not hooked to my son's printer at all, he is grown and does not live here. I just borrowed his computer until I get a new one or have mine repaired.
OK. I would like to fix the issue using Remote Desktop but the information you are looking for would require an extended amount of my time than what I normally do for the listed price. If you think it is fair, please increase the question price to $40, remember you will ONLY pay if we solve the issue. Customers now have the ability to increase prices even after a reply is posted by an Expert. You can do this by clicking on the “edit” button next to their original Question.
you don't need to refund, I will give you 100.00 if you can help me fix my computer. do you think you can help?
OK, we can try and you will pay only if we solve the issue. I will give you the link to start the remote desktop feature. Please let me know when you have time.
You are referring to my computer, correct? if so when will it be good for you? I can do it anytime. I will just need to put some connections back on my computer. My problem this that I can't boot up. it keeps giving me a error message but I can't remember what it says now.

it will not boot up. it tries but not successful
It seems the computer have several issues then... :-( What error message do you see?
it will not boot up. it tries but not successful it comes up to the black window that states the it did not start up correctly and gives you three options to try to boot it, none of the 3 work, it always go to a screen that states a problem has been detected and windows has been dhut down to prevent damage to the computer. tech info it gives is *** stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x89c44848, 0xc0000102, 0x000000000) it states to disable or uninstall any antivirus disk defragmentariness or backup utilities. check the hard drive config and ch for any updated drivers. run chkdsk/f to check for hard drive corruption and then restart the computer.
Unfortunately this seems a major issue and the computer should be taken to a computer shop to be repaired.
