The last operating system that supported that printer was VISTA. You can go to the lexmark site and download that driver and see if it will work with that computer. Even the HCL page for windows doesnt show any information on it and Lexmark says that printer is not in production any more.

SOURCE: Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One

For those of you who have downloaded the appropriate vista driver for your printer. Go to device manager on pc (control panel, hardware and devices etc) Select uninstall printer driver, as you want any old references to xp one deleted. Now, place new disc or dicc with new driver files in and your install new hardware program shopuld self start. IF not you can manually do it by going to add new hardware wizard, and select own information to suit yopur needs. But win vista should automatically find the new drivers.

SOURCE: Lexmark X4850 paper jam

  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

SOURCE: Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One

I bought a Lexmark X1290 printer and installed a wrong driver (for WinXP) from the enclosed CD. Then I could not run the All in One program. After many reinstallation attemps, I finally found a solution (which is unfortunately quite hidden at the Lexmark website):

1) Unplug the printer's USB cable from the computer.
2) Download the cleaning utility from ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/.
3) Double-click on the cleanup utility and follow the on-screen instructions to run it.
4) Restart the computer.
5) Download all files from ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/reg/
6) Follow the instructions in the "Vista BackDoor Instructions.txt" and delete all remaining Lexmark
keys in the registry.
7) Restart the computer
8) Download a proper driver for Windows Vista from the Lexmark website.
9) Install the driver accordingly to the instructions (it's important to plug the printer's USB cable when you are ask to, not before)

The problem with Lexmark Unistall and CleanUp Utility is that you cannot delete all Lexmark registry keys while you arelogged in the system. This is anellegant way how to circumvent the problem.

Cannot use Lexmark X4850 printer without installation disc.


Hi,

You should be able to go to the lexmark.com web site and search for your printer. Go to downloads and enter your printer description or X4850. This is the result I got. If your computer is running Windows, then you need to get either the download for 32 bit or 64 bit software. See microsoft.com link to tell the difference.

Run the setup after it finishes downloading but ONLY connect the printer to the computer when the setup instructs you to do so.

Your talking about the printer drivers I suspect can you load this up from the control panel under printers remember to turn your printer on so Vista can see it and then from the control panel under printers you should be able to load the new driver.
