Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My printer won't work with my Windows Vista computer. Vista takes over and installs drivers automatically before I can use the CD to install them. Then I try to print something using Microsoft Word and it won't connect to the printer. It keeps telling me to reinstall the driver but that won't work. I have the Lexmark 4300 series all in one printer.

Lexmark x5470 drivers won't install with cd or thru Lexmark on line. Using windows vista 32 bit.


Make sure to uninstall the old Lexmark driver before installing the downloaded driver. It should automatically create a print object under "Printers" after installing the driver.

Cant install with vista 64bit.........any suggest!


Hi,

The drivers for your HP product are already included in the Windows Vista operating system. You do not need to download drivers or install using old CD to use the product.

When you connect the product to the computer, Windows Vista detects the hardware and automatically installs the correct driver. A notification lets you know when installation begins and when it is complete. You do not have to download any software or insert the product CD.
  1. Turn the product on.
  2. Connect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable to the product and to the computer.
  3. A Your devices are ready to use window might display on the screen. If the window displays and does not close automatically, close the window.
Your basic Vista driver is now installed.

Regards
Riztech

P1005 hp printer windows vista will not recognise


hmmmm i would first make sure all window vista driver are in first. then try installing the cd. or if you want to try the driver only and not all the extra software...

1st uninstall the driver and software and do not connect the printer. until it asks you.

2nd put the factory cd for the printer but do not let it run automatically. cancel the installation.

3 you go to the control panel add printer, etc. have look for the driver and say "have cd" or go to the cd drive where the vista folder is holding the driver file.

i know this can be tidious but its kinda old school for installing a driver instead of letting the cd do it automatically have the computer find the driver on the cd first. dont add all the extra software. try it and see if it works then try to add all the extra software.

personaly i think sometimes the vista updates stuff where it screws with the drivers and then your computer does not know what its looking for. i hope this kinda helps. sorry for your mishap.

have you also tried connecting to all the usb slots?

5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.
*NOTE:

-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The RED error light will flash when the printer is low on ink and go solid when it is out.

Not install for windows vista


In any Windows environment, the printer itself becomes a dummy terminal and all changes to the printer will be over-ridden by the application or the operating system.

Windows Vista should automatically detect and install devices attached to the computer. Simply connect the printer to your computer and power it on.

If the driver does not automatically install, you can follow the steps below to install a resident driver which is part of Windows Vista. The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. Click the ADD PRINTER button. If you do not see ADD PRINTER, right-click in the PRINTERS window and select ADD PRINTER from the menu.
3. The ADD PRINTER wizard window will appear select Add a Local Printer.
4. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

*NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.

To make adjustments to the output quality and speed in Windows Vista, please do the following:

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, and PRINTERS.
2. Right click on the printer icon, and choose PRINTER PREFERENCES.
3. Click on the ADVANCED button in the bottom right corner.
4. Click on the GRAPHICS option and click the down arrow.
5. Choose the lowest number to drop your resolution and pick up your speed.
6. Click on PRINT FEATURES and choose the option HIGH SPEED ON.
7. Click OK to apply the changes.
8. Once again right click on the icon for your printer, and choose the PROPERTIES tab.
9. Click on the ADVANCED tab and click on the button called PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER.
10. Click APPLY (if applicable) and/or click OK to apply the changes.

The driver you are using is a graphics driver and may not have the adequate speed for your purposes. In Windows VISTA there are more basic drivers which respond better to custom page sizes and speed adjustments. Windows also has a driver called GENERIC TEXT ONLY which is made as a universal driver for all printers just for speed. To add in either of these drivers please do the following:

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. In the left hand column choose the option ADD PRINTER. The ADD PRINTER WIZARD comes up, click on NEXT.
3. Select Add a Local Printer.
4. Click on NEXT.
5. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
6. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturer. Please use the guide below to select an appropriate Emulation driver. If you wanted to install the Windows universal driver, choose GENERIC under Manufacturer and choose TEXT ONLY, click NEXT.

EPSON LQ SERIES (136): Used for LQ wide carriage printers
EPSON LQ SERIES (80): Used for LQ narrow carriage printers

EPSON LX SERIES (136): Used for LX wide carriage printers
EPSON LX SERIES (80): Used for LX narrow carriage printers

EPSON FX SERIES (136): Used for FX wide carriage printers
EPSON FX SERIES (80): Used for FX narrow carriage printers

7. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
8. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
9. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

*NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
