Lexmark X1100 Printer not printing after upgrade to Windows 8.1
Question: Lexmark X1100 Printer not printing after upgrade to Windows 8.1Printer was working fine on Windows 8.
Upgraded to Windows 8.1 and now printer does nothing after sending document to queue (in email).
When trying to print from MS Word, I get an error message when I try to click on Printer Properties from Print dialog
box saying "Word cannot bring up the properties dialog because the printer returned an error".
Already tried Windows update and manufacturer's website.
I am using the latest driver.
Device manager says device is working properly.
Printer folder shows this printer as the default.
Can't figure out why this is happening.

Close the software which are running in the background - Lexmark X1100 Printer not printing after upgrade to Windows 8.1
Part of the reason why old PC take so long to start and various errors is because of all the applications you've installed. Reducing the number of applications which start-up when Windows boots enables you to get to the desktop faster and increases the memory available.
Press Windows+R and type msconfig and click Ok. Select the Services tab, tick 'Hide all Microsoft services' and see what's left. There may be services you can live without and clearing the tick box prevents them from running. For example, Firefox works perfectly well without the Mozilla Maintenance Service. On the Startup tab (click Task Manager in Windows 8), are lots of programs that start with Windows. Knowing what to disable isn't easy, but you can use Google to search for items and see if they are necessary, useful or neither of those.
Reinstall your System
When you have tried the above methods but can't seem to fix your error, you can reinstall your Operating System and install a "clean" copy of Windows onto your system again. But this should be the last resort to fix your problem, as this will completely erase everything on your hard disk and it will take you a lot of time to reinstall all your software back to your computer. It's very necessary for you to back up all files, pictures and personal information before you do that.
