Hey man,

First, unplug your printer from your laptop.

Go into System Preferences and click on Print & Fax. If your printer is there, delete it by selecting it and press the ( - ) icon at the bottom.

Plug your computer in your laptop and un Print & Fax, press the ( + ) icon and select your printer.

Try to print from there.

If you have Snow Leopard, the drivers will be installed automatically. If you have a older version, you will have to download the right drivers from lexmark.

Hope this helped you out!
