Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Robert Preston and I will be assisting you with your problem today.

Turn the printer off

Uninstall it by going to:
Start Menu > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program

In there, find the Lexmark printer in the list and remove it

Then restart the computer

Once restarted, reinstall the printer using your installation disc

Power it on when prompted by the installer. If it does not prompt you, wait until it is done installing and then power the printer on.

Then you should be good to go
