Installing Lexmark 6100 series all-in-one to new hp computer

I put in the installation disk for the all-in-one printer, scanner, fax, copier and it ran to install but at the end said that installation failed. Will this work on the windows vista? This is a unit we had and used on our old computer and worked just fine. I need help to install this successfully. Thank you. Sincerely,

I am assuming you mean the Lexmark X6100.

Although Lexmark doesn't list a Vista driver, it does show a firmware update file.

Unfortunately, you will have to perform this from an XP machine.

However, if you don't have access to an XP machine, a lot of people have had luck using windows 2000 drivers on Vista with success.

The windows 2000 driver can be found here:

A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

My new lexmark 5000 printer\fax\scanner cant load i have windows mill on and it says it wount support it .could u help me

You can try visiting the Lexmark website to find drivers for Windoze ME to support your new All-in-One, but I have serious doubts you will find any help. And Windows ME couldn't support a lot of things it claimed it could at the time. You could install something, like a printer, and it would work only until the system was rebooted. My wife fought with that with her old Compaq that had ME on it. The smartest thing you could do is to upgrade to XP, or replace the computer altogether with one having XP. If you are somewhat computer saavy, you might try out a Linux distribution. Linux is available for free, and there is a lot of free support available in each distribution's forums. There are Linux Live CD's available to download and burn. Running one of those, you can find out if your new All-in-One is supported without installing anything on your hard drive.

Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.

why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.

Lexmark 7300 Series is not in the listing.And cannot be recognized by the computer.

I assume you want to install it.
Download the drivers from the Lexmark site and upon installing new printer select "browse" and select your downloaded driver.

Installed Lexmark 1240 but when I try to set up fax it says no modem found

Yes, This assumes that you are hooking the printer upto a 56k/Fax modem on the Computer, Which the Printer already has itself, What you will want to do, Is hook a Phone line upto the the Printer in the appropriate slot, and dont worry about setting the Fax feature up on your Computer, Just Worry about the Scanner, printer. For the Fax Feature, Dial the number on the Printer and It should work without Ever touching the Computer

Printer won't connect

I think you need to press on the (Have a Disk) button and install your printer cd - which came with the package - into the CD-Drive

when you open your CD-Directory, the needed info file will be automaticlly selected, all you need to do is pressing (open) button and then (next) from the printer installing wizard.

Hope that was helpful.
