Make sure you have the right driver installed


I got a new computer this year for school, and with it came a new printer. I got the printer installed at home, and printed out the test page, and it even did it at school once or twice. But the other day, I went to print and it gave me an error message that I was either out of paper or there was a bad connection. There is plenty of paper in the printer, and I checked all the connections, and everything is fine. I deleted it and reinstalled it, and that didn't fix it, and I went to properties on my computer and checked my USB ports on hardware, and they're all working fine. When I turn the printer on, the power light and the feed paper light blink back and forth between each other. I e-mailed Lexmark, and they said I might need to contact Intel to make sure the version can handle the printer, but seeing as it's a new computer, I don't think that is the problem, and since it worked before, that shouldn't be the problem. Please help!!!
