Lexmark all in one printer don't install on vista. is there a patch


You may want to see if the Printer is actually compatible with Windows Vista first before you try anything else.

If your Printer is Listed Below, then unfortunately it will not run on your system unless you format the machine and downgrade to Windows XP. (Or obviously you can wait until the device is supported, but to be honest that could be months, years).

I have a lexmart 640 series printer that i have being trying to download to my new hp computer.it keeps telling me to contact the manufactuer something about the singature is not sign right .i have being...


If you have a new computer there is an excellent chance that it came with Vista.
If you are trying to install the drivers using the disk that originally came with your printer, it will not have the drivers for Vista on it, to get the correct drivers go to the location:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:0:0:0

where is says "search by printer model" type in T640 and the select your operating system.

If it still complains about the signature just ignore it and tell it to proceed, it probably just means that Lexmark never submitted the driver to Microsoft for testing and certification (Microsoft charges for that).

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.
