Installing of Printer

Hi, please help ! I'm using a Acer 3620 Laptop, running on Windows Vista Basic. When tryiing to install a Lexmark X1180 Printer, I get the message "Windows can't open Add Printer, the local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine" The printer has been installed when I got the machine 6 months ago without any problem with the printer CD. I encountered a problem two days ago namely, when ask to print, the printer opened but refused to print! On advice from a local dealer, I Uninstalled the Printer and when tryiing to Re-Install....the message keep on coming up! HOW DO I restart the spooler and what is the Spooler....Please can you help???

Re: Installing of Printer

I had the same problem and like you couldn't find the solution and was verrrrrrry frustrated. Last night I loaded Vista Service Pack 1 (RC1). THE PROBLEM IS NOW FIXED. If you aren't comfortable loading a "beta" version you will need to wait until the first quarter of 2008.

Hi i have a lexmark printer that i use to have connected to an old computer but now need to connect it to my netbook. The paperwork for the printer has x1100 but the printer has x1180 on it. My problem is...

Before you connect the printer via the USB cable to your netbook, check the version of the operating system(e.g. Mac or Windows - XP, Vista or Windows 7). If you are using Vista or Windows 7, check if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. NOTE: USE VISTA DRIVER IN WINDOWS 7. FOR MAC, ONLY WORKS UP TO 10.3 version.
You can download the Lexmark X1180 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Click on "change OS" to select your operating system (see image):

Then click on "FILTER" (see image):

Click on the driver under "Recommended Downloads". Download, execute the file and follow the instructions in the software.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance or you can also contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

Your best bet would be to visit Lexmark's website to see if your printer is compatible with Vista. You may be able to download updated drivers for your printer, or they may be able to suggest alternate drivers which may allow you to use your printer with Vista.
