Hi there,

Well sorry to say but there is no driver for your printer (Vista).... But there is a way to do... please follow the below steps -

1) Uninstall your old Canon MF5550 driver.
2) Reboot your computer
3) Download the Canon MF5550 driver Windows XP version.
4) Open your Vista Control Panel, then click on PROGRAMS (not on Uninstall or something else...)
5) bellow "Programs & Features", click on "use an older program with this version of Windows". Follow the wizard.
6) Locate the program manually. (If you need to search the folder where you downloaded your Canon driver, just go to search file on C. It will probably download on your desktop or Downloads)
7) Open the MF5550 Folder where you downloaded the driver, and click on the setup.exe file.
8) Choose on the next screen Windows XP
9) If you need to change the display settings, go ahead. But I didn't change anything. I just clicked NEXT.
10) Fill in the box: RUN THIS PROGRAM AS AN ADMINISTRATOR and click NEXT.
11) Click Next again and let Windows Vista do its job.
12) If it worked... just click yes and finish. If it didn't, click NO and run it again.

Hope this helps.....
Good Luck!!

Thanks

Just got new computer with windows vista now my lexmark p6250 printer dos


Remember that Vista is about 2 years old; any "new" printer first marketed within the last 2 years probably is not recognized by Vista.

Have you accessed LexMark's web-site, and downloaded and installed the device-driver for Vista for your specific model of printer?

If you can print, than it is possible the computer has recognized plug-play (PnP) printer. The downloaded program may not be the one for your specific printer.
