Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

My hp, windows Vista will not copy to my lexmark all in one

I have bought a new hp computer with windows vista. My Lexmark all in one X4250 will fax and photocopy but when I go to copy from the computer, it only copies 1/8 page, stops and then spits it out. The computer tells me copying is complete.
I have downloaded the right lexmark programme as I have rung Lexmark so many times. They said to configure the Lexmark entries with the rhythm.
I have taken off my antivirus, but it doesn't make any difference.
I rang windows, who said it is hp's problem as they are under licence as the programme was on the computer when I bought it.
I have rung hp many times who say they can't do anything as it is not compatable. I have been trying to fix this for a month. The lexmark was only bought last year and works fine with Windows 2000.
I am at breaking point as know will help me or take responsibilty.
The computer is still only a month old.
hp said to quote t1138517.
Please, can you help me, as I don't know where else to go
Thanks
Annette

I know you said you have the latest drivers but just confirm you do with that link, I checked the compatibility and it is good with Vista so you should not be experiencing any issues. Try doing a complete uninstall and printer reset then running that downloaded driver, only plug in the printer to the computer when requested.

I had the same problem and can give you the exact instructions I was given and used to fix mine. I am not a tech guru so do not have all the underlying reason about why.

A link will be provided. It is the place to download the updated version of the Lexmark Driver for Vista, whether it be 32 bit or 64 bit, or even Windows 7, etc.

The other thing I had to do was to update Vista; in other words short of a full reinstall of the Vista software is the only way I could get it to work. Do not plug the cable for the Lexmark hardware in until the Vista has completely finished doing the update. If you do update instead of full install with the Vista disc, you can still keep all of your docs, etc.

Link for Lexmark updated drivers:
http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html


1. So to recap: delete all of your printers in control panel.
2. To a complete update with your Vista installation disk.(Make sure the cable to the Lexmark printer is unplugged until Vista finishing installing itself.
3. Install the updated software from the Lexmark link.
4. You may still have to use the Lexmark original installation software to tweak some items for the different applications such as fax versus scanner versus copy, but the main problem for me was no printer or scanner working. I do not use it for fax since I have Efax, so that was not an issue for me.

Good luck.

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.

Microsoft has been very lax about writing new drivers for older devices under Vista.

Go to www.drivers.com or www.lexmark.com and look for a Vista Driver.

I don't think you will find one, tho.

Good Luck.

Hi, I bought a new computer it came with VISTA, now my two printers (X4250 & X75) will not work. Do I need new drives? Thad


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

  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).
