Customer Question
My Dell PC and my...
My Dell PC and my Lexmark X7170 don't seem to be communicating. I've run the disk that came with the printer. This printer was initially set up to print from an IBM Think Pad. I no longer use the Think Pad and want to print from my Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista. Help!
