Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Lexmark all in one x4250 ink jet printer and a new computer with windows vista. I cannot get the printer to print a whole page from the computer.As well, the print is often 2 or 3 lines on top of each other. I have been in touch with lexmark who tried to help me for over 3 hours. Sometimes it will print a whole page but not the second page. It stops printing, then spits it out unfinished. When printing a single page, it only does 1/8 or 1/2. Again, the print in sections is all doubled, smudged or out of alignment. Lexmark helped me test the all in one, its fine as it will do everything but print from the computer. lexmark is at a loss.I had windows 2000 before and there was not a problem. I have taken it to computer shop who said they can't do anything, I have rung HP (the computer brand) so many times they won't talk to me anymore, I have rung windows who say it is HP's problem as windows vista was already loaded onto the computer when I bought it. I have been trying for 6 weeks to get it right. Please, can you fix it as I need this computer as I am self employed. Thanks Annette

    I cannot get the lexmark to print a whole page and it prints lines on top of each other.

    I have downloaded the driver,no change. How do I remove the software when I bought the computer with it on it already?

    The lexmark is compatable with vista, I have been to their site and I also have rung lexmark. The lexmark is not even 2 years old.

    How do I find out how many bits is is?

    The printer did not come with the computer, the Windows Vista program was already installed on the computer when I bought it.

    STARTING - CONTROL PANEL -  PRINTERS AND FAXS - Highlight printer then tell it to DELETE PRINTER.  It is possible the the software is not the problem?  If the computer came with the printer, and it has never worked,why not contacted the support where you bought it?

    you cannot what?

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Try this.
     Update the driver using the download link below. It is for VIsta 32 bit. 
    You do not have 64 bit ,right? Worth a try. If that does not work remove al the software for the computer . reinstall the VISTA softewre with the printer off. The connect it and see if that worked.

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.

Lexmark won't print whole document

Seems an unlikely solution, but I upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007.

As soon as I did this, I was able to print multi page documents. Go figure!

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:

^^ 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:

Lexmark X6170 Not Printing on Left Side of Paper?

If the pages printed from the printer directly comes out OK then you may need to update the driver for the printer. If the pages printed directly from the printer menu have the same problem then contact Lexmark again explaining everything you've done. If the person is still not helpful ask to speak with someone who is more able to assist you. Hopefully still under warranty.

Hope this helps!
