Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One

I bought a new Acer Aspire 5100 laptop on Windows Vista which came with a Lexmark X1290 All-In-One. The Lexmark driver was for Windows XP. Per instructions of Lexmark website I deleted the XP driver. Again, per instructions, I went to website and downloaded correct driver-compatable with Vista. I saved it and now how to apply it? (How to open the new driver file and run it?). I am not too computer savvy and have spent many hours on the problem.  Thank you so much for your assist.  Kaarina (

You need to download the Vista compatible setup here from Lexmark,

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

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
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
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.

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.

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.

My Acer aspire 5100

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
