  1. Temporarily unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and then plug it back in.
  2. If necessary, turn the printer back on. It should make a resetting sound.
  3. Check that the print cartridge has been snapped into place.
  4. Make sure the printer is directly connected to the USB port on the PC.
  5. If another peripheral device is connected, remove it and connect the printer directly.

I can not install driver for x1185 when i change to use window 7

Unplug the printer from your computer. Uninstall the existing Lexmark X1185 driver from your computer by going to the Start menu ? Programs ? Lexmark 1100 Series ? Tools ? Uninstall. Then reboot pc when prompted.
When computer turns on, check the System type of your Windows 7 by going to the Start menu ? right-click on Computer ? Properties. Take note of the System Type, 32-bit or 64-bit.
To reinstall, use the Vista driver from the Lexmark website. Click on the link below:

Download, execute the file and follow the instructions in the software. Thanks.

I want to connect lexmark x5470 printer to an acer windows vista

Why is the webpage now helping?
I would go to Lexmark's download page (here) and follow the prompts for zone and country.
Simply type "X1185" in the search bar that says: "Search by Model".
It will lead you to the correct driver for Windows.
Just download the file and run it.

Does it install the driver?
Can you print?

Otherwise, please describe in more detail what the problem is.

To fix this you need to download the Windows Vista driver for your computer. The driver is basiclly is the software that allows your printer and your operating system to communicate twith eachother.

The Lexmark 1100 series driver includes the x1185 and you can download it here:

That should get your printing in no time , simply download it and run it!

Installation w/ Lexmark

I had that happen too, look on the taskbar for the printer icon (not the Lexmark icon). It's usually only there when printing a document and looks like a printer. If there, double click to open and make sure there are no jobs in the que. If any are listed, delete them from the file menu. See if that helps, that was my problem. Good luck !!
