You did not post the printer model, however, more then likely you are trying to use the original driver cd that came with your printer, and at the time you purchased it, vista drivers were not available.

please visit the link below to download the correct driver for your printer directly from Lexmark.

Well i have a windows vista and wanted to install a lexmark x75 and when i insert the installation software it says that there's an error


The reason why you receive that error when you try to install the software to you computer because this printer is not compatible with Vista and lexmark didn't create any software for Vista....

Need drivers for lexmark z23 to install on vista


They don't make a Vista driver as it is an old printer but the XP driver might work, just ignore any messages saying it might be incompatible and install the diver, if it doesn't work, uninstall the driver and buy a new printer.

My Lexmark X6170 cant communicate with computer. My computer says that software was installed correctly. The all-in-one center did install for some reason though. I have Windows Vista.


Hi,
The Vista operating system is being replaced by Windows 7 because of incompatibility issues and many other bugs. The best solution and what I tell most of my askers is to replace Vista with XP and wait for Windows 7 to become available.
Vista will give you endless problems regardless of what others tell you.
Best wishes,

Device/Drivers Incompatibility


Was this installed by disk with software or did you get the driver and software from website.

You need to uninstall the software and make sure the driver was uninstalled. First go to my com,properties, hardware, devise mgr,
and look in this list for the driver,lexmark printer. Now use add/remove programs and uninstall the lexmark stuff, now restart pc, and check devise mgr and make sure its gone,if not just rt click on it and pick uninstall,restart pc. Now run the registry cleaner.


Download this free registry cleaner, its pretty good for free.

Run the cleaner, and then download the driver,make sure vista driver, from page that I post below. Now reinstall the software
and follow the directions when it tell you to hook up the printer.

Registry cleaner;;

http://www.ccleaner.com/download


Driver page.

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#


You will have to research the driver as the page does not hold the driver.

Dont have installation CD for Lexmark X5470 All in ONe


You say your computer was incompatible? What does that mean? You should be able to get the software installed this way:
  1. Go to the Lexmark Find Drivers/Product Selector page.
  2. Enter Lexmark X5470 under "Search by Model", and click the Search button.
  3. Select your OS from the dropdown (XP, Vista etc.).
  4. Click Download Now.
  5. If you're asked to Save or Run, choose to Run (it keeps you from having to go find the file and double-click it later).

Computer will not communicate with printer


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.

Computer will not communicate with printer


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.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:479:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=
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.
