If you are with a lexmark printer switch to windows xp or just try to buy another printer... If you are using this x4270 printer probably it is famous for faxing problems so probably you must not try to fax...Try lexexpress if you are in warranty

Lexmark provides a download fix for this problem, but it takes a long time to load, say several hours. I just left the computer running and went to bed. Vista goes to sleep on its own. Printer is working fine, except for color, which I shut off a long time ago. Cosmo

Fax does not require installation on the PC. Driver for Vista is here:

Printer 4270 prints only a partial page and then stops

Thanks for the help. I followed your recommendation of uninstalling the Lexmark program and reinstalling it. Note that I had done this previously and still had the problem. However, following your advice, the third time must have been a charm. The problem has been solved.

Lexmark 4270

The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Lexmark X4270) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Important News 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.

All-In-One X4270 Not Printing

Windows vista is a brand new OS and many printer manufacturers have had to produce new drivers to run on these OS. I would visit lexmark website and download the new driver fo your printer and OS (vista).
