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

Go to the Lexmark site. More than likely if the unit is more than a few years old you will not find Vista drivers. Most manuf. have their hands full creating Vista drivers for current products and are making no effort to provide for older equipment. Be prepared to throw it away. It is a problem for many varient Operating Systems: XP64-bit, Linux, etc.

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.

Almost certainly you need to update your driver although I thought Vista already had this driver. Anyway try downloading Vista Printer driver from link and reinstalling your printer.

ok you can not just simply download drives from the internet. If you have a home computer that is plugged into the printer that has bluetooth then get a bluetooth usb and plug into the laptop, and it should print from the laptop.

Printer is 3 y.o.-new computer with windows vista & cannot communicate in order to print


Have you looked for an updated Vista printer driver on the web site of your printer manufacturer? The XP driver may well not work.

I have a Lexmark X75 all-in-one which I would like to keep but when I try to install it on my new printer I get an error message saying that it is not supported by VISTA. Help! I have looked for new driver...


Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but Lexmark have decided they want everyone to buy new printers to use with Vista: they are not going to write vista compatible ones.

If you phone Lexmark and make a lot of noise about it some people have found they are offered discounts on new printers, but there is no guarantee you will be one of them. Good luck.

I bought a computer with vista and now I can't hook up my cannon printer or scanner.


The bad news first... Vista hates and will not drive cannon products.
The other bad news... Cannon went out of the printer business and never wrote a vista driver.
Now some more bad news... vista is not really as fully developed as the XP os and don't really know if it will ever be, it's pretty, but it's one problem after another.
The solution is either buy new printer/scanner or revert Ur system to an XP os. This is the sort if issue that windows went back to selling and supporting XP.
This is a very traveled road!
