Lexmark X1185 Not working with Vista

Have a Lexmark 1185 worked great on two computers with a network setup. I got a new Toshiba Laptop (with Vista) but the printer was still hooked up to the desktop and I accessed via wireless network- worked great. Then we got a new desktop with Vista and we could not get the Toshiba Laptop to print through the network tried everything and so did the geek squad. He said just go buy a second printer.

Hope this helps

After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.

I believe you have to push the scan button in order for it to scan and save. The copy buttons will only print either a black copy or a color copy.
