Here is the link to the  Lexmark VISTA specific driver for your x1200 series printer. I do not believe it is an all-in-one driver. File name:  cjr1200EN.exe  Size:   40.49 MB

Hi,

I would replace the USB cable, also uninstall the software and with the printer unplugged from the computer install the software again, then when it asks plug in the printer. Normally issues arise when the printer is connected before the drivers and software are installed.

Have a great day,
ArmyMason

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

Use the control panel printer install along with the new downloaded driver.Whee asked where the driver is, just let it know where you placed it. I would first uninstall the printer .

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

Download the Vista drivers from the Lexmark website. If the printer still doesn't work, uninstall windows Vista and put 2000 or XP.
That will avoid a lot of problems and your PC will run amazingly fast.

From the Lexmark Site:
Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.
Good luck.

Hooking up printer


Maybe your USB port or USB cable is not working? For sure you need to get the latest drivers for Vista, Try to download the driver from Lexmark website at http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?category=Drivers&ccs=229:1:0:552:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista If that still doesn't work, see if you can get another USB device to connect to your computer - like a USB Flash Drive (or "thumb drive").
