Lexmark X2650 won't install on Vista

My Lexmark X2650 won't install on Vista.

I downloaded the most recent Vista 32-bit drivers from Lexmark's site, and tried installing them. When it asks me to plug in the printer, I do, Windows recognizes it but fails to find an appropriate driver when set to automatically do so. Even I refer it to the Lexmark driver's setup directory.

Resets don't help, finishing installing the driver and only then plugging the printer in doesn't help either. I'm sure I'm using the right Vista driver, my Vista is 32-bit.

What can I do?

    Just drivers, not firmware.

    Tom, Did you install new drivers, or a new firmware set? If by accident you installed firmware, and it was not for your printer, then you need Lexmark's people to tell you how to burn out the firmware, and revert to the right level. If this is truly new drivers, then there is something strange too, and you may have to fall back on Lexmark to get help with it. -a.

When you run the hardware wizard tell the wizard you will select you hardware from a list or location. This will bring up another window and at the bottom it says don't search I will select my drivers, then another screen will come up showing any compatible hardware that windows already has in it's sysem files but press have disk and then browse to location of the drivers and install them regardless of what windows says. Sometimes windows will say that the drivers are not made for your hardware, which of course it is so you can ignore that or it will say that the drivers are not signed, you can ignore that too.

    This is to install the drivers. Firmware will come with it's own installer or in the form of an .exe file.

    This is a way to force windows to take the drivers that you have. Sometimes drivers are written for a series of hardware such as the x2600 series which might include a few different printers and windows gets confused if the printer reports something different than what the driver says. It's also possible that your settings are set to not accept unsigned drivers. Unsigned just means that they weren't sent to microsoft for their approval, this is very common with hardware manufacturers, especially when they're under pressure to get a working set of drivers out to the public.

Lexmark x5470 drivers won't install with cd or thru Lexmark on line. Using windows vista 32 bit.

Make sure to uninstall the old Lexmark driver before installing the downloaded driver. It should automatically create a print object under "Printers" after installing the driver.
