    I dont have driver of x1270 lexmark to my windows vista

  • Grampy Peter Feb 15, 2008

    Problem : error 1075 and Local print spooler service is not running.
    problem description : I have a Lexmark x4270 all in one. I installed the driver for it in my new laptop running Vista. Turns out the driver is not for Vista but XP. I uninstalled the XP driver and downloaded a Vista driver from Lexmark. When I try to run the printer software I get a message "Local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine." I tried all of that. I have looked this problem up on the web and it is quite common with Vista. Many of the "solutions" say it is a problem with an incomplete removal of theincorrect printer driver and they show how to correct in the registry. I am not comfortable tinkering with the registry and thought I'd consult with HP first.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    I tried "everything" I could to fix the problem of getting "error 1075" fixed in my HP laptop running Vista. HP came up with simple solution below. The regedit part is what fixed mine. I did not need the safe mode part. I think Lexmark should add the solution to their knowledge base.

    ==============================
    From HP: Please perform the below given steps in safe mode to resolve the issue.

    Reboot your notebook and press F8. The system will show some booting options select safe mode.

    Note: Starting computer in safe mode may take some time.

    Uninstall the printer using Progams and Features from the control panel of your notebook.

    Unistalling any software from Control Panel :

    1. Click on Vista (start) button

    2. Click on control panel

    3. Double click on Programs and Features

    4. Click on YOUR Lexmark Printer and click on remove.

    Download and reinstall the printer software using the below given link :

    http://downloads.lexmark.com

    NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is invalid.
    Copy and paste the entire link in a new browser window.

    NOTE: The URL above will take you to a non HP Web site. HP does

    of the HP Web site.

    Note: The information provided here is only for your reference. HP does
    not test or recommend the usage of third-party devices with HP
    products.

    After the installation of drivers, restart the notebook into normal mode. Now plese check with printing any document. If the still persists then perform the below given steps :

    Click on Vista (Start) button, and type Regedit.exe in search bar

    Navigate to the following branch

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Spooler

    In the right-pane, double-click the DependOnService value

    Delete the existing data, and then type RPCSS

    Close Regedit.exe

    This should resolve the issue. If the issue still persists then please get back to me with the observations and results.

    Hope the information provided will be helpful and addressed your concern.

    If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and I will be happy to assist you further.

My Lexmark Z705 Will not Print HELP


Use the Vista driver in Windows 7.
Also, make sure that the Print Spooler service in your computer is running. Try following the steps below:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Lexmark 3350-Vista-Prints but Won't Scan


Is this the driver you downloaded. If so , sounds like a Lexmark software or driver problem. I am a little confused as the heading on you question says x1270 but the bold type says 3350?

Print spoolers


In the search bar of the start menu type in "services.msc" without the quote. After hitting Enter you should get the services control panel. Ensure that the print spooler service is started and set to Automatic. If it runs into an error when trying to start it should report what service it causing the problem, ensure that service is also started and set to automatic.

Installing of Printer


I had the same problem and like you couldn't find the solution and was verrrrrrry frustrated. Last night I loaded Vista Service Pack 1 (RC1). THE PROBLEM IS NOW FIXED. If you aren't comfortable loading a "beta" version you will need to wait until the first quarter of 2008.
