I was told that my Lexmark X5470 is not compatible with Windows7. Why? I have seen it answered otherwise.


There is not a Windows 7 driver available for this printer. That said, many devices will function under Windows 7 using the Windows Vista drivers.

I'm looking for a printer driver for X5470 for Windows Vista I made a download, but the printer is not installed


Try to uninstall the existing driver first before installing a new driver. You may refer to this article on How to Uninstall Lexmark Printers. Reboot pc when prompted. When computer's ready, check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit by going to the Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type. Download the driver using the link below:

Follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps.

First, unplug the Lexmark printer from your computer. Then uninstall any existing Lexmark X5470 driver from your computer. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark X5400 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Uninstall the driver. Reboot pc when prompted.
When your computer turns on, check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit service type. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the Service Type.

I have a Lexmark X5470 that will not work with my PC with Windows 7...It worked OK with XP. What can I do?


a Windows 7 driver was never developed/released for the x5470 however the company did produce a Vista driver which they certified as Windows 7 compliant.

You can download the driver here-

if you already installed the XP driver on your Windows 7 machine you will need to uninstall it with the following procedure-

uninstall instructions for Windows


Step Action
1 Disconnect the USB Cable (where applicable)

2
Locate the Start / Programs / Lexmark XXXX Series / Tools / Uninstall Lexmark XXXX Series shortcut. Image
3 To start the uninstallation procedure click on the Yes button. Image
4 Please be patient and let the operation complete. Image
5 As indicated on the last screen, restart the computer by clicking Ok.

Just bought this as a Christmas. Is it only for Mac or will it work with a PC?


Checking the Lexmark site for drivers pertaining to the X5470, and it seems that it will work with a PC.

http://support.lexmark.com/index?segment=DOWNLOAD&userlocale=EN_US&locale=en&productCode=LEXMARK_X5470&page=recommendedDownloads#2

If it only shows downloads for Mac/OsX, click the Microsoft tab just above that and it will show drivers for XP/Vista/Windows 7

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.
