My computer a Dell 4600, was purchased last August slong with a Dell printer A920. Recently, I have not been able to connect to the internet without the computer freezing. Ctrl, Alt, Del has no impact. It must be rebooted.

I determined, through the process of elimination, that Lexbce Server shown in services via msconfig, must be disabled to allow me to connect.

If I disable it, I no longer have any printers, not the A920, fax, image writer, etc.

I've uninstalled the printer, restarted in safe mode and attempted to delete the offending file. Didn't work.

Any suggestions are appreciated. I've spent way too much time on this already!

LexBce Server LEXBCES.EXE Y This is installed by Lexmark printers, and some Dell printers which are made by Lexmark, to configure the onboard network print server. Disabling this service will make it so that print spooler service will no longer startup, which effectively disables printing on your computer.

This can be fixed by removing the LexBceS dependency. To remove the dependency you should use the following command and start the print spooler service:

sc config spooler depend= RPCSS

Note: Notice the space after depend= . This is necessary.

I'm not sure I understand when or where I should enter that command. Could you provide some more detail?

Thank you!

I tried your suggestion Keith and now, with the Lexbce Server disabled I can , of course, connect and when I look into the control panel, I can now see the printers but nothing will print citing failed communication.

Click start then run then type services.msc then press enter, look for print spooler to check it is set to automatic, if not, double click it then change start up type to automatic, click start then apply. Then check remote procedure call, top of two, check this is set to automatic, if not, change same way.

Do you get any other error message

Both of those services were already set to automatic and had started.
I have not seen any other error messages other than the one saying that I can't print due to not communicating.

Dell say, hold the printer power button for 10 seconds to reset, make sure the printers are not on the same port, re-install the software.

If you re-install the software, run tune up between uninstall and reinstall

Run disc clean up then registry clean up
