This is the driver download page for your printer: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+Photo+P3150 Unfortunately they don't have a driver listed for Vista. This is pretty common, a lot of companies are slow to develop drivers to be able to use their products with Vista.

Is there any possibility of making this printer compatible with windows 7


With Windows 7, I found that installing the Vista software/drivers in the compatibility mode works well.


Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on).


***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***


As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


Scanning

Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

I have a Veratec desktop computer and am having all kinds of problems with it. It is one year old. Will not communicate with my dell printer A920 and is difficult to operate otherwise. Please help.


Well what operating system do you have on it? Windows7 doesnt like some printers. check online for print drivers and update them. Follow this link to help you with that... http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_FA36C542525D975EE030030ABD621881&isLegacy=true
you can also try this approach... First, let's make sure your computer has the latest Windows Updates, especially .net framework, needed to run many applications and the latest Java.

Disconnect your printer.


Download and run this patch (***WARNING*** The patch for this printer also removes other Dell applications, like Dell Dock, Dell QuickSet and other Dell applications)(These applications can be downloaded at Drivers & Downloads and can be reinstalled) to completely remove the printer from your computer. Run the patch(A MUST on Vista Machines) until it prompts you to restart your computer.


If using Windows 7 also try...Manual Printer Driver Removal


Restart your computer.


Download the proper drivers.


XP Drivers


Vista 32-bit Drivers


Vista 64-bit drivers


All other drivers


Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer(powered on)

***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***

If using Windows 7, use the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode.

Just bought a new computer and my Dell 720printer does not work? Thank you


If you bought a new computer it probably has Windows 7 installed and the Dell 720 may not be compatible. You can try downloading the Vista drivers from Dell here. They may work with Windows 7. If not, you'll need to replace the printer with a later, Windows 7 compatible one.

The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10440

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!

Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.


why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.
