    I believe that's where I got the drivers that I am gets the printer working but not the scanner. I found another way to make it work though. Instead of using the buttons on the printer I just use a program like Coreldraw to acquire the image from the works.

Cannot find on my Laptop running Vista. don't have Coraldraw either as suggested by previous comment. (I downloaded cjrX5100EN.exe got printer only working but not scanner and the instructions above. help pse

    OK, so the new Vista X5150 drivers don't include the scanning function so I have tried scanning direct from Windows Photo Gallery as recommended by Lexmark - and also Picasa for good measure. Neither works - the scanner appears to do its job then fails at the end - Photo Gallery's error states "The system cannot find the file specified" and Picasa states "Either the source is unavailable or the destination is full or read only".

    Any help would be appreciated!

Just as you can draw out the image using CorelDRAW, you can also use the File> "From Camera or Scanner" function in Microsoft Paint. It bypasses the driver.

YES Lexmark appears to lose on this one, puts Lexmark down several points on my chart and many other are finding the same problems and no further help from the Big Company Lexmark, pity. Probably end up with HP

It could be due to the printer driver not installed properly. Try to uninstall your existing printer driver then re-install using the driver from the Lexmark website. To uninstall, on your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 5100 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Reboot pc when prompted.
When your computer turns on, please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5150 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > click on "FILTER" > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

The disc can not be installed on windows 7 operating system

There are no Lexmark X5150 drivers specific for Windows 7, however, the Vista drivers work with it. I suggest not to connect the printer to your computer yet. Download and install the software first. But check your Windows 7 if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit by clicking on the Windows logo Start button > right click on Computer > Properties. For the driver, click on this link: (for 32-bit) or this link: (for 64-bit). Download and install the software. Follow the instructions on the software. The scan software is not included in the driver, however, you can explore the installation cd and manually install the All-in-One scan software. Hope this helps.

Have used Lemark X5150 with old computer for some time (windows 98SE Have just bought new computer - Pacfkard Bell with windows Vista Home Premium and cannot install printer etc on it. pop up just says...

Almost certainly you need to update your driver although I thought Vista already had this driver. Anyway try downloading Vista Printer driver from link and reinstalling your printer.,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

If successful, would appreciate feedback because this lets other people know if the solution was effective or not.

HERE IS YOUR DRIVER from producers site:

or click directly here for download to start: Vista#

If link dont work, copy and paste it into your browser. It worked for me. Download the driver and dobleclick it, install it and i hope it will work.

Fact is that, i quote from producers site - "The Vista drivers available on the Lexmark website do not contain the All-In-One Center.". So you will be able to print, but dont know if scanning and fax, etc, will work. Lexmark appologises and promises are there for solving that issue since last year, but not yet...

PLease rate the solution. Thx.
