Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a new Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 8 64bit and I need to download a printer drive for my Lexmark X4850 as I don't have the CD.
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.

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.

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.

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.
