Question about Lexmark JetPrinter X1185 All-In-One InkJet
I first used my Lexmark 1200 series with my laptop that runs Windows XP and the printer worked fine. When I got my new computer which runs Windows Vista, I can not get the printer to work. What could be the problem?
I bought a windows 7 computer, my canon printer will no longer work, and there is no canon driver on the canon sight.What do I do?

You need to download a new driver for Vista from the Lexmark website. http://www.lexmark.com

Yes there are drivers for the Lexmark 1200 series available on the Lexmark.com Website. If you upgraded your PC to Vista or installed the drivers from CD you should uninstall the printer drivers and download and install the Vista drivers .

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.
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.

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.

Have you updated Vista with the Update for Windows Vista (KB925528)..
This is a reliability update. Install this update to resolve reliability issues with some USB hardware devices and controllers. ( Validation Required ).....
I hear that this update helps a lot of printer communicating problems...
Hope this helps..
Please rate this solution if it helps you.... Thank You...
