Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages

I have an Acer Aspire 3100 laptop with Vista that came with a Lexmark 1290 printer. I have it connected to my USB port, it is powered on and I just installed the latest driver. I also installed the CD software that came with the printer. I can send documents to the printer but they are printing blank pages. I have removed the tape off the ink cartridges. I can scan with no problems. Why is it printing blank pages?

Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Trying to find the printer drive for a Lexmark X4850 that I can download to printer from an Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 8 64bit


The last operating system that supported that printer was VISTA. You can go to the lexmark site and download that driver and see if it will work with that computer. Even the HCL page for windows doesnt show any information on it and Lexmark says that printer is not in production any more.

LexMark e321 printer is printing blank pages. I changed out the ink toner, reinstalled the driver from the E321 disk, changed the USB cable and still get 2 blank pages and the LED button by error is...


Try to disconnect all cables from the printer and leave it off for about 30 seconds to clear the print job. Turn the printer back on and check the status lights, error light stop blinking then try connecting the printer back to the computer and try printing again.

For further assitance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Compatibility printer/laptop


If both are fairly new then yes they should be.
That laptop comes with vista home basic and the printers website has drivers for xp and Vista, even 64 bit vista. So you should be good to go.
