I bought a HP p6644y desktop last week running Windows 7...hooked everything up and it works fine. Connected my Lexmark X5470 printer to it, drivers were automatically downloaded and installed. For a couple of days, the printer worked normally. Yesterday, however, I attempted tp print a Word document, and the job just sat in the cue waiting to print. After trying every remedy, I eventually uninstalled and re-instaled the printer. I even used the original disc that came with the printer. None of this worked. Whenever I go to print, the menu panel says 'no printer installed'. When I try to correct this, I get a pop-up telling me that communication with printer is unavailable.
I've checked all my connections and unplugged and re-plugged the printer back in. All connections are fine. I tried switching USB ports, too.
What else can I try? Thanks!
