    I cannot re-install a Lexmark X75 printer to lap-top with WindowsME
    installed. Goes thru the installation process until it gets to the "Find
    Printer" screen, then refuses to find the USB port. Have Microsoft issued
    updated USB drivers for ME usb ports, and if so, where can I download them
    from?

  2. USB drivers for WindowsME are usually at the website of your PC manufacturer
    or (even better) at the website of your motherboard manufacturer.

  3. Check the documentation that came with the printer - usually USB device
    require that you install the drivers first (creating a virtual USB printer
    port), then connect the printer so the USB port can be "found" when the
    printer is detected.

  5. USB 1.1 drivers came with WindowsMe and there were no updates.

    Do your USB ports work with other devices?
