I don't want to admit it, but for the benefit of understanding what could be wrong, there is an "obtained" lite version of Windows XP Professional on this computer. I'm usually for that kind of stuff, but since this computer is so old it seemed to be the best way for me to bring life back to it. But anyway it's very probable that something has been removed from the xp installation that is making this problem surface.
I was hoping there would be a more direct way to install the drivers possibly by manually copying files myself. I would've asked Lexmark but I went to their site and can't find any help except by e-mail.
edit: this is probably in the wrong forum... move the the hardware/periphreal section if necessary)
