seems to be having problems with this printer and Windows 8. So I used my Lexmark and I am having the same problems with it using the default Windows drivers. There needs to be a fix available as not having the option to print, well, is not an option. I am
a college student who has reports to print on a weekly basis. I am having to take all my material to the library and then pay to have it printed out. This should not happen on $150 dollar piece of software. I would expect this from a $9.99 piece of **** but
not the public release of an operating system.
1. What is the model number of the Lexmark printer?
2. What is the make and model of your computer?
Cause of Ntdll.dll Errors: The causes of ntdll.dll error messages can vary greatly. However, most ntdll.dll errors result from a corrupt or damaged version of the ntdll.dll file itself, corrupt hardware drivers, or issues between Windows and other programs.
Ntdll.dll errors can sometimes mean that a piece of hardware in your computer is malfunctioning, but this is rare.
