  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  3. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.

I have just bought a new laptop, which is Windows Visa. My last laptop had Windows XP, which I attached my Lexmark 730 Series printer. How do I get my printed to work with Windows Vista. I have tried...


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.

if its a usb printer make sure it is plugged in to laptop and turned on, vista should recognise its there and make sure it has the right driver automatically, hope this helps you.
