If the printer is connected with a Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable and is connected directly to the computer, follow these steps:
95/98/ME RAM usage:
What does this mean? You should find a list of system requirements on the printer box. Your processor speed should be greater than or equal to the listed minimum processor speed. (If you did not get a printer box with your printer, check our website for system requirements for your printer.) If the box states 64 MB of RAM, it is a good rule of thumb to have that amount "available" for use, as calculated above. Again, if the computer has 20 times the amount of RAM needed to run the printer but all of it is being used to run background processes and programs, the computer could experience hangs, freezes, or lockups. If you want to get the most out of your Lexmark printer, it is imperative that you are running at least the recommended system requirements. Running the minimum requirements on any system with any new piece of hardware will not allow that hardware to perform at its peak performance level.
Windows 95/98 and ME.
Access your Printers folder through the Control Panel. Right click the Lexmark printer and select Properties. Click the Details tab and then Spool Settings Select Print directly to the printer. Then click Apply and OK.
