vista has many compatiblity issues when it comes to software and hardware, what you need to do is download the right drivers for the operating system you are using (if any)
the best thing to do is go to the website and see if there are any vista software or drivers.
if not then the device will only work on XP


hope this helps

This usually happen with an old printer and new computer with new OS.
You can try downloading your new driver for Vista at Lexmark website here:

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_652569478_0_en,00.html

If doesn't work, ask to customer service for assistance

But at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.

Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.


why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.

Hi, I bought a new computer it came with VISTA, now my two printers (X4250 & X75) will not work. Do I need new drives? Thad


Yes, you are going to need to download new drivers for Windows Vista

Windows Vista Driver For the X4250: http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/9086/

^^ Just download and install that , will get your printer right up

As for the X75 , there does not seem to be a Vista driver out for it yet , you can give the XP driver a shot and see if it will work

X75 Driver: http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:358:0:0
