Recently I had to do a repair install of my Win7x64 OS. Part of that uninstalled my Lexmark 2300 series printer (manual here if you are interested). When I tried installing from the CD I keep getting that processor incompatibility message. I've googled the problem and one tip I found is trying all the compatability settings on the Setup.exe . I tried every one, and got the same message.
Then I found what is supposed to be a Win7x64 installer here. It is named "Z2300", not "2300 series", but I thought it might be the same thing. When I run the installer, I get to the part where it says connect your printer USB, and it never recognizes the USB cable. The "Continue" button on the bottom just stays greyed-out. I've waited 10 minutes just in case it's laggy, I've tried connecting to every empty USB port on my PC both front and back, but it never recognizes it. I know my USB ports are working, because I have several in use right now, plus I use a stick on the front ports about every week or so.
I've had this printer working with my PC since I put it together in January of 2012, so I know I figured out how to get it installed previously, I just can't remember what it was that I did. For all I know there might be an archived thread somewhere here from the last time, but I didn't find anything with the Search.
I'd greatly appreciate any help figuring this out again.
