Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
We just got a new Gateway computer with Vista on it, and are trying to install the lexmark 5470 printer to it. It keeps coming up can't communicate. We have reinstalled it 3 times, but it still won't work. We checked the firewall and it is okay there. It is set as the default printer and everything seems ok. Help. Thanks

If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.
Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.
Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.

I had the same problem when I got vista. First goto lexmark's web site and try to download the vista driver. It did not work for me I had to contact lexmark and they sent me a new driver disc for vista. I have had no problem with it since.

Download the Vista drivers from the Lexmark website. If the printer still doesn't work, uninstall windows Vista and put 2000 or XP.
That will avoid a lot of problems and your PC will run amazingly fast.
