Vista doesn't like non-microsoft software. It will tell you that the lexmark software is not supported. Click install anyway. Do this before plugging in the printer or vista will assign it's own driver. Which wont work. Then go into the control panel and select the lexmark as the default printer

New laptop with windows 7 won't print to Lexmark x7350. says to enable bidirectional support - but that option is grayed out.

Make sure to use the correct printer driver version for your operating system. You may need to uninstall your existing printer driver first before downloading the new driver. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 7300 Series > Tools > Uninstall. After the uninstall process, reboot pc when prompted.
When your computer turns on, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > Properties. Check the System Type. Note: Use Vista driver in Windows 7.
Use the links below to download and install the printer driver: - Lexmark X7350 Driver for Vista/Win7 32-bit - Lexmark X7350 Driver for Vista/Win7 64-bit
Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer

For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

Can't print from Vista Laptop

You need to go to printers and faxes.  Set up a new networked printer.  Take the drivers off of your vista machine, because by using those drivers, vista is thinking that the printer is physically hooked up tot hat computer.

You will need to go on-line and find the Windows Vista download for the drivers and software for the item you are installing. After installing; re-start computer and see if printer prints.

Computer will not communicate with printer

Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.
Click on the link provided.
Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.,6959,204816596_652569481_0_en,00.html

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer

Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.

If you can't follow that link, go to On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.
