Re: Installation

Could be your USB drivers for the actual port itself is giving you troubles. What you can do is this. Unplug the printer! Go to Device Manager(Right-click on my computer then click Properties, click on Hardware Tab then press Device manager Button) Look under Universal Serial Bus Controller. Is there a device with a yellow exclamation? if there is, right click on it and uninstall. Go to the top of the list the right click on your computer name and click on Scan for hardware changes! If it finds new hardware and prompts for drivers,(If asks to check online, select no, not at this time) select Install from specific location, then click next, Select the top one(Search these specific locations, and uncheck everything else)!! Next. It should go all the way through, if you get a propmt about unsigned driver click continue anyway! If it goes through try connecting your printer if not it will end in with an error, get back to me with the exact error!! Also your pc might require chipset drivers!! Get back to me with your computer specs if the above doesn't help! regards, babb

How can i use my lexmark X74 X75 All In one on Windows operating system

Support information the X75 printer can be found here.

Support information the X74 printer can be found here.

On these page are a link to Windows 7 Information; if you open you will find that Lexmark does not support your printer for Windows 7.

There are no Windows drivers available for the X75; however drivers for Windows, 2000, 98, Me and XP (32-bit) are available for the X74 and these will probably work for the X75.

If your operating system is one of the above check under the tab labelled Downloads; select your operating system to download your driver and save in a known location.

When you connect your printer Windows will try to install but you should be prepared to point to the driver location. If the printer doen not autoinstall you will have to add your printer manually through the Printer section of your Control Panel.

Well i have a windows vista and wanted to install a lexmark x75 and when i insert the installation software it says that there's an error

The reason why you receive that error when you try to install the software to you computer because this printer is not compatible with Vista and lexmark didn't create any software for Vista....

X75 windows vista compatable drivers

Not really, If you like vista and dont want poxy xp back, then from vista install using Microsoft Virtual machine Windows XP, thiscanrun from within a window like any other app, just intall the bare stuff, and install theprogram you use to print from,and then install your printer, easy.

But ultimatley the 3rd party vendors do need to keep upwith the times, most other makes of printer will working without downloading any other driver, but Lexmark make there money on inks not printers, so they dont really care at the end of the day.

Just install VM ware or similar, install XP and printer, and your sorted.
