    I am using a laptop with Window Vista Business and trying to connect it to my
    printer which is operating by a window xp desktop computer. However, when I
    try to add this printer, it states that 'Windows cannot connect to the
    printer. There is not enough memory to complete this operation. Please close
    some programs and try again.' I can access the shared document of the other
    computer but not the printer. What can I do? Please Help!

    Did you install the Vista drivers for the printer onto the Vista laptop? If
    not, this is what you need to do next. Go to the printer mftr.'s website
    and get the latest drivers for your specific model printer.

    Then I'm sorry but I don't know. I would contact Lexmark tech support or
    wait for one of the printer gurus (of which I am not one) to come along.

    I'm sorry I was unable to help you.
