    I installed a Lexmark X2350 on my laptop running XP home SP2 with only 1 USB
    1.1.port, it being 10 years old and short on memory! Installing it on my PC
    (same OS) with 5 USB 2.0 ports via PCI slot and 2 USB 1.1 ports on board,
    just does not work. I have trawled all similar posts,contacted the Mfg. (all
    they say is "update your usb files"), un and re installed printer and usb
    ports, tweaked the registry,imported all reg.entries relating to usb from the
    laptop, and yet here I am reduced to nil. All other devices I have, whether
    1.1 or 2.0 work very well. Lexmark say plug the printer power and usb cable
    in before loading cd software - this seems right because it worked on the
    laptop and not doing either or both leads to non detection of printer upon
    install.
    Lexmark also say cancel out of all 'found new hardware' wizards, which also
    seems correct because if you continue with the wizard it finds no inf of dll.

    Any of you fine technicians got the solution?

    Try uninstalling all the Lexmark Software. Disconnect the Lexmark and
    restart. Reload the Software and then connect
    the Lexmark.

    the install gui will hang and time out at "detecting your printer" point if i
    do this during or after s/w install.
