Do you have Vista 64 Bit.
Find out if any exclamation mark shown in device manger entries for your Printer.
Also check and let me know about the Printer spooling or not in Printer settings.

    Thanks for rating me. If you have found any exclamation, Red cross, or yellow mark in entry for Printer or USB then it will need to reinstall.


    Let me know for further assistance as I do provide chat and remote support with minimum cost.

    This problem is related to port, might be the driver are not installed or gone corrupt..

    Change the port setting.. and try to locate the port in the printer properties (Printer Icon at Control panel, rt click on it properties)

    Best of Luck,
    Scott

Unplug the printer from your computer. Uninstall the existing Lexmark X1185 driver from your computer by going to the Start menu ? Programs ? Lexmark 1100 Series ? Tools ? Uninstall. Then reboot pc when prompted.
When computer turns on, check the System type of your Windows 7 by going to the Start menu ? right-click on Computer ? Properties. Take note of the System Type, 32-bit or 64-bit.
To reinstall, use the Vista driver from the Lexmark website. Click on the link below:

Download, execute the file and follow the instructions in the software. Thanks.

I want to connect lexmark x5470 printer to an acer windows vista


Why is the webpage now helping?
I would go to Lexmark's download page (here) and follow the prompts for zone and country.
Simply type "X1185" in the search bar that says: "Search by Model".
It will lead you to the correct driver for Windows.
Just download the file and run it.

Does it install the driver?
Can you print?

Otherwise, please describe in more detail what the problem is.

I got a new computer with windows vista and it will not recongine the printer


To fix this you need to download the Windows Vista driver for your computer. The driver is basiclly is the software that allows your printer and your operating system to communicate twith eachother.

The Lexmark 1100 series driver includes the x1185 and you can download it here:

That should get your printing in no time , simply download it and run it!

Yes, go to www.lexmark.com and click on DRIVERS AND DOWNLOADS. Then use the DRIVER FINDER. In SEARCH BY MODEL, type in X1185 and you can choose a Vista driver from there.

Communication problem with notebook/printer


You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.

Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.

Good luck.

hi selim2004,

You need to download the Windows Vista compatible driver for your X1185 at

Be sure to select the correct Windows Vista driver (there is one for Vista (x64) and one for Vista (which is the 32-bit version and the one you are most likely running on your PC)

Hope you find this information helpful in getting your printer to function correctly with your PC
