Hi Guys,

We have a Lexmark x204n which is becoming very problematic.

You add it to the Windows 7 32-bit PC and if you're lucky you will print a page, then it will appear "offline" greyed out within "Devices and Printers".

Also when I'm adding the printer it is asking for further information with the screenshot below, rather than going straight to the driver selection screen.

I have also added this under my Windows 7 64-bit system with the same result where it asks for "Additional printer information required" as well.

What are your thoughts guys?

Much Appreciated,

This worked but being an automatic tool I'm not sure on what it exactly corrected on the back end.
