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!

I have a maxtor external HDD that has been working fine and all of a sudden has stopped and is now making a clicking noise and my PC will not recognise the HDD. My PC has Windows XP.


Most probably it is going out. Clicking noise is from the platter in the external deive which means it is failing...Sorry but you might have to get a new one.

Try putting the drive in the freezer for about 1 hour and see if it will reconginize it after that...I know it sounds funny but I work on computers all the time....Darren

Let me know how things work out...

Remember that Vista is about 2 years old; any "new" printer first marketed within the last 2 years probably is not recognized by Vista.

Have you accessed LexMark's web-site, and downloaded and installed the device-driver for Vista for your specific model of printer?

Printer won't print


Although Lexmark has not released a Windows Vista driver for the Lexmark X75 printer, there is a good chance that Vista will support your printer without the need for installing a driver (i.e. Windows Vista probably comes with a driver for your printer already built into the operating system). Windows Vista comes with support for 2.2 million devices and since your printer is not a new model, it is likely to be supported. Just try connecting it to a computer that is running Windows Vista and see if it is detected and installed for you.

We do have the drivers for Windows 2000 and Windows XP available for download from our driver database:

  1. Go to the Lexmark Find Drivers/Product Selector page.
  2. Enter Lexmark P6250 under "Search by Model", and click the Search button.
  3. Select your OS from the dropdown (Vista).
  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).
