Question about HP Pavilion Media Center a1330n - AMD Athlon 64 2.4GHz Desktop Computer (Open Box Product, Limited Avai... (EL466AAABAOB)
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,
There are some compatiblity problems between Vista and your printer. Check this web page to download a driver that may provide limited printing capability for your printer...you'll need to use Windows Scanners and Cameras or Photo Gallery for scanning.

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:

Tips for a great answer:
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.
Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.
Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.
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.
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.
Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.
Make any last minute changes.
If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.
Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.
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.
