Cannot get Lexmark X5340 driver to install in Vista

Cannot get Lexmark X5340 driver to install on Windows Vista. I have spent hours on the phone with a Lexmark tech and a Dell tech. Microsoft of course was no help AT ALL... Unless of course I wanted to pay them $79.. I have tried installing from the disk and from the download from the Lexmark website. When try to print it says problem communicating with printer. Checked device manager and there is a splat on the Lexmark 5300 series which is listed in other devices and not in usb devices. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated... This has been giving me headaches for 2 weeks now..

    Thanks micromend!!! I Will try this. I have virus and spyware programs installed that are updated and ran daily.

  • cynthiakaye Jul 29, 2009

    Ok.. I tried sfc /scannow. Did not find anything. Still same results. I might should add that my computer is only about 3 months old. Also when I try to update or install driver in device manager it gives me an error that windows found the driver for my device but was unable to install it.

OK I'll give this a go but you may have been led down this path already by the Techies.

Disconnect the printer from the PC

Go to the control panel/printers and faxes and right click on the printer and uninstall.

Reboot PC

Just in case your initial driver download was corrupted go to the Lexmark site again and re--download the drivers and software.

Install the drivers and when prompted connect the printer to the PC.(make sure the printer is turned on beforehand) . The printer should then be detected and you should get a message (after several mins) that it is installed and ready to use. Don't do anything else until the lexmark install tells you it's finished.

Next install any software you downloaded (if any was available)

When finished restart your PC.

Hopefully all is OK but being neither a Lexmark user nor Vista user I cannot guarantee it and apologise if you've already been down this road before.

It works for me though on other OS and printers.

Hello

I've had similiar problems with customers printers in the shop. Generally I have found that if I uninstall all the Lexmark drivers and associated software and the USB drivers, then goto Start, run and type CMD (you'll need to have admistrator rights). At the prompt type SFC /scannow. Have the orginal Vista disk handy because it will probably need to install USB drivers. Once this has completed reinstall the drivers that came with the printer (not online). This should solve your problem, now you did eliminate any chance of viruses, malware or spyware interfering?

How can i install my lexmark x5340 all in one printer with out my disc


If you are running Windows XP, Vista or Win 7, you can try to just plug the printer to the computer and let the computer detect it. Most printers are Plug-n-Play and does not require any additional drivers.

Win XP to Win 7 has a built-in generic driver for most printers that are out in the market.

But if the computer asked for a driver for your Lexmark X534, check the links below and download the driver for free:

Thank you and good luck!

Hi,
What you need to do is the following. First Uninstall completely the Lexmark software and all of its folders. Once you have uninstall everything that has to do with the Lexmark software then restart your computer (Make sure you do this properly otherwise it will not work) Once the computer has come back click the following link http://bit.ly/dd8LMi and download the driver for windows Vista.

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.
