Posted by on

    The Lexmark 1100 series driver is installed and the computer recognizes that it is there. I just get a fail to communicate between the two.

Have you tried... lexmark.com downloads to see if there is a different driver for vista.
or sometimes unpluging and repluging the cables on both ends does it.
check that printer is default printer.

    sorry didn't work. lets start again...

    your os... vista or vista x64? different drivers only reason i ask.

    during install did you have the usb cable connected before being prompted to do so? if so uninstall and reinstall. it will not install correctly the usb cable connection prior to being prompted.

    try pulling the power cord from wall and the printer and reinsert. recheck your usb cable to make sure it is not damaged.

    in your printer folder does it say your status .. ready--paused--offline? if it says either paused or offline right click and click resume printing or use online. go to properties and check ports and see if usb port for the printer is only one checked. if not check it and uncheck any before. if you do not find the printer info there you will need to configure port. check it and configure. then try test of printer.. put something in scanner and push black or color copy on printer.

    if still no go... uninstall and reinstall printer software. something may not have installed correctly. again make sure you do not install the usb connector until prompted during software install.

    last resort is tech support at lexmark.

    hope this helps.

I got a new computer with windows vista and it will not recongine the printer


To fix this you need to download the Windows Vista driver for your computer. The driver is basiclly is the software that allows your printer and your operating system to communicate twith eachother.

The Lexmark 1100 series driver includes the x1185 and you can download it here:

That should get your printing in no time , simply download it and run it!

Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.
Click on the link provided.

Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.

Compatibility with printer/scanner


Insert the printer software disc into your drive and try to follow the directions from there. Before that you should disconnect the printer from your computer.

I had this same problem...drove me crazy for a week. Called the geek squad at Best Buy and they mentioned something about a"patch" (which I had no idea what that meant) on the website of the printer. I went to Lexmark website, and selected 1200 series and windows vista (which is what's installed on my computer) A page came up to install a driver that made the two compatible and it worked!!!
