This response presumes that you are using a 32-bit version of the Vista operating system. If that is the case, the proper driver file, per Lexmark is cjrX6100EN.exe (this is in the U.S.), and can be downloaded from this page:

If you are attempting to use the Lexmark All-in-One Center for scanning on this basis, however, it will fail, and you will have to use the Windows Scanners and Cameras, or the Photo Gallery, functions to use the scanning features. It is indicated that the driver supports scanning, the All-in-One Center is not included.

Though you haven't indicated what part of the driver download/install isn't working for you, you can find instructions for installation at this page: I would suggest creating a folder (either on your desktop or in a location which will be easy for you to work with) in which to place the file upon download. Then, double-click the file, and it should follow routine setup procedures. If it does not automatically install, thereby enabling your printer, please let me know. Make sure that all programs are disabled, particularly IE, antivirus and antispyware programs, as these often interfere with installation.

These are quite general instructions, I realize, but I can not tell exactly what is not working when the driver download was previously attempted. If there are further problems, please post back and I will be happy to assist with further detailed installation.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

    Sorry - forgot to add one more thing. If there was already a driver installed for Windows XP to run this device, it should be removed prior to installing the new Vista driver. Please reference this support page for the relevant files/data: Thank you again.

Lexmark x5470 drivers won't install with cd or thru Lexmark on line. Using windows vista 32 bit.

Make sure to uninstall the old Lexmark driver before installing the downloaded driver. It should automatically create a print object under "Printers" after installing the driver.

When trying to add my printer(LEXMARK 6150) to my computer what model/make do I select to make my printer compatiable with my computer?

You should select your make and model. If you do not have a printer driver showing up in your options to select you need to download a printer driver from here.

The Windows Vista driver will also work for Windows 7. Select the version of your Windows operating system, i.e Windows Vista (32-bit) or Windows Vista (64-bit).

If you do not know the version of your operating system, open Control Panel, click on System and look for System type.

Download the available driver and note the location where you save it. Use the add a printer function and if necessary point to the driver file location if the install program can not find it.

Shoud you need instructions with greater detail look under the Top Articles tabs at the above link for further assistance on how to download and install a driver.

Trust this is helpful.
