Printer driver installation compatibility with vista
I got a new computer with vista os and I have a lexmark 2350 printer. I have deleted all previous drivers and software and have tried to download new drivers off lexmark website for vista/ 2350 printer and I get about 17% download and it freezes. I have tried everything, I have disable popups and added lexmark download to trusted site to no avail.

Lexmark has not yet launched the drivers for windows Vista. However, there are few work around that have been found to work. First of all install the drivers for the printer from the disc for XP only in case you have not done that. Once done..try the below 2 fixes.
Fix#1 Click start...control panel..printers Right click on lexmark printer...click properties...go to advanced tab locate the option that says driver..usually it would have the entry z25-z35. Once you click on the drop down there should be another entry by the name of z25-z35 color printer select that option and click apply.
Test the functionality. If above does not work try the second fix
Fix#2 Click start...control panel..printers right click on lexmark printer...click properties...go to ports tab select USB00x instead of LPT 1

That's because Lexmark 2350 does not work with Windows Vista yet. There are currently no supported Vista drivers for this printer. I don't know if Lexmark is working on an update to provide support for 2350 on Vista, but you can always write to them as ask for status.
I to have a X73 and love it .............but for the price of new ink (I have seen them for $39.99 to $49.99) you can get a new lexmark all in one! After spending two days trying all different drivers I think that is what I will be doing.
